The fact that it could end up an alternate timeline would explain a great many things...

Would make Orci's remarks how the story "respects canon" make sense (because by being in an alternate timeline, "real" canon is not interfered with)...

It gives Paramount free reign to do what they want into the TOS era without having to square with any material under CBS's control...

I'm a hardcore fan and it actually makes sense to me, and makes me less worried about the movie because in the end result, it will just be a "what if" story...
