That's exactly the point. OP isn't talking about erasing everything and starting over. He's talking about taking everything that happened in 1,2,3 and Origins. And using it to change the entire course of X-history in DoFP.

So the memories of Wolverine and McAvoy Xavier are what keep those films alive (not to mention those films themselves because you can always go back and watch them) and the new cast gets to go on their own adventures without being tied down by the events and actions of the original cast. Including allowing Cyclops to live on and getting Magneto into the action a lot more regularly. Both things I really want to see.
