What is stated in the comic is stated in the film, if that helps. Orci wasn't lying in interviews, nor was he making up explanations to soothe the egos of ill-informed fans. He was talking about his own script in as much detail as he could without giving the whole story away months in advance.
Do they actually say in the countdown comics or the film that they haven't hopped dimensions, but merely traveled in time? If they did, then you're absolutely right. If not, then the best explanation given what we know about the star trek universe is that they not only traveled back in time, but also to a parallel reality, as we know that in every prior case of time travel within a single universe, history is actually altered and the old time line ceases to exist.

I'm not bashing the film or anything - I still plan on seeing it and I hope it's great. I'm just saying that given the info we have, an alternate universe makes the most sense.
