If you think about it this could work:

- Magneto is already the leader of the brotherhood. They're not just going to throw his character away and make Mystique the leader like in the comic book story.
- Mystique's slowed aging would make it fit better in time continuity
- They could explain her "coldness" to brother-like Xavier. Maybe the psychic time traveling slowly removes her memory? I just know they're going to have to come up with something to make audiences believe someone would try to poison their 'brother' to death, even if you didn't agree with his political views.
Haven't they hinted in recent interviews that it could be physical time travel?

It sounds much more likely to me in this story. Just send Kitty/Rogue/whoever to 1973 physically, then send them back.
