Because if Cyclops and Jean Grey are brought back with no other explanation other than "time travel, herp derp", then it brings into question the validity of the entire main trilogy, and what is and isn't what actually happened anymore.

Basically, the course of events spanning the entire trilogy is now tossed out.
The future validity of the original trilogy was called into question the second its events, and everything post 1973, were determined to be the cause of the dystopian future the X-Men are trying to avoid.

No, that's not what he said. He's said he's not ignoring any of the films, and he's not. They are still in continuity, but they are part of a problem continuity. In order to fix a problem, you have to acknowledge it exists in the first place. And there will be fixing. That is the entire point of the story. What will be fixed, however, remains to be seen.
