Either way you look at it you can't use how many characters the OT to justify what they plan to do next for this film series, otherwise you could also justify the FC cast having more screen time to justify the next step in this film series, its pointless
If they are planning on continuing with main trilogy sequels, then I wouldn't expect any sort of major "retconning" or X-Men 3 / Origins removal. No way are they going to break / erase continuity if they are planning on sequels to that continuity.
