Seriously guys, the Ten Rings connection was NEVER explained, but very clearly established.

And unless Marvel, and Shane Black, are just that incompetent (they aren't), something like that doesn't get left lingering unless its leading to something significant.
The Ten Rings were never used by name in IM2. You can easily say the Ten Rings was the terrorist cell that Stane effectively destroyed in IM1. Problem solved, and likely much easier than explaining some convoluted plan of pretending Trevor was the Mandarin but he wasn't but now he is. There is no point in doing this, especially when IM4 likely wont happen until after Avengers 3, and with a new Iron Man at that.
