Probably not.

To me, that seems more episodic, like a TNG arc for a storyline. Not a bad idea, but better dealt with on TV, as there would never be time for a final resolution even over several movies. A movie might devote portions contributing to a (future?) TV story arc of Vulcan politics and logic and possible breakdown in the wake of such an even for them emotional upheaval and physical displacement? Through Vulcan being destroyed, they all have had to deal with emotions that they may never have had to face. It would be too much for a movie to introduce and resolve to a degree of acceptance.

My opinion anyway.

The Vulcan aspect is of great potential - but I would agree that it does seem something more suited to the long term exploration that a weekly series would be able to afford it. That said, it wouldn't be impossible to tailor something that might work on a feature film level and manage to give the film just enough depth to start expanding and deepening the new timeline.

Although, I don't think that Nimoy would be strictly required for a story. I kinda see his role as that of 'torch-passer' in the first film, and think that perhaps the focus would then be on Quinto instead and perhaps another Vulcan leader who has influence over the survivors.

Or part of them.

how about a classic style kind of TOS story because they would have to bring in things that are familiar

Well, now that all the pieces are in place at the end of ST:XI, the next movie should almost be like an "episode" of the new timeline's version of TOS...
