They're just going to do whatever they think is "kewl."
Despite the myth to the contrary, Star Trek producers have always made certain choices based on the "cool factor" (even GR, just hand him a alot of cash he'll go bug nutz and "update" everything) - its a tv show or in this case film, entertainment. Doing what's "cool" is a legitimate reason to do something.

I mean there was no good reason the Enterprise-D didn't have its saucer at Farpoint but to show off on behalf of the production team and add a "Cool Factor" to the premier.
