The reason we have that thought is because of Coulson. That's why I don't like it. It automatically makes you shrug off any future death in the series.
1: The notion of "they may not really be dead" is never a shrug around here, is a tsunami of feverish, desperate, half crazed theories to stem the unthinkable, ungodly notion that a character we like might not be in the next movie.

2: It would be that way wether Coulson was brought back or not. We're comic book nerds, we're not all that smart.

3: Again, Coulson being back won't cause anyone to shrug off anything if his coming back is both unique and a monumentally huge deal with serious consequences.

Plus, if it DOES turn out that the Coulson on TV isn't really Coulson, just a clone or an LMD who THINKS he's Coulson, then they didn't bring Coulson back anyway, they just created a new related character with a whole lot of angst.

The world does not work the way you think it does:
