And if the idea of another movie with the original cast fulfil, they'll give it another jump to the future. It will be a natural and consistent progression - PAST > FUTURE
It is still going back and forth to the present and past. At some point, it has to stop unless you don't think its not affecting the box-office of these films.

Days of Future Past will start in the present and I think it will end in the present. And for me, the magic is lost in doing movies set in the past with the FC cast, when you already brought back the cast that started the franchise.

Do you think they would like to be anchors for the original cast?
Being shown in the flashback scenes doesn't mean they are downgraded to supporting roles. It could be 50/50 or 60/40 (60 as the percentage for the flashback scenes) just like most of LOST episodes.

And business-wise, doing an OT film with a bunch of Flashback scenes featuring the FC cast would bank more money, than the 3rd FC film which won't feature the OT cast except for few actors.
