I don't see it as a whim either. I just don't see it as a plan by Fox to pass the torch back to the OT team.
It's possible, sure, I'm open minded to that. And I wouldn't be surprised if Fox is now flirting with the idea of what they could do with the OT team folks since almost all of them showed up again for DoFP (Halle, Ian and Patick seemed pretty eager at SDCC for more -- the latter two especially: Patrick seemed to be goading Singer into assuring that Xavier would remain "alive").
