Singer has said he's not 'cherry-picking' the franchise, and I believe him, so the only reason he'd excise a part of the current franchise would be if doing so was warranted due to the parameters of the story he's telling with DoFP, which sounds like what's happened with O:W.
I disagree? My best friend can't stand comic books. He loves movies. He hates the X-Franchise. He loves Nolan's Batmans and The Avengers.

More than just fans have problems with the X-Franchise. It's riddled with just about everything that makes a bad franchise. Plot holes, recasts, continuity errors, unwarranted and unearned deaths, and Baraka-pool.

Rather than viewing it as a reboot (as the OP titled the thread) I think he's describing more of a renaissance. In terms of (likely) never seeing some of the major cast again (Stewart, Mckellen and Jackman) and allowing a younger cast to pickup where the current one never really traveled. It's not a hard or even soft reboot. It's a resurgence.
