Having it fit together in a time travel narrative is charity to the clique of extremely anal canon-wonks
Which is charity that is totally unnecessary. See my previous post.
Maybe so, but it's certainly to be expected when some of the people working on the reboot (Orci and Kruzman) happen to be fans of the original.

For example, I'm a huge fan of original Battlestar Galactica. Did I complain that nuBSG wiped it out? Of course not, because it didn't. The two versions can and do coexist, in parallel realities. Nothing is ever wiped out.
Sure, but NuBSG also included the original cylons as "old models" strictly for the entertainment of the original fans, without explicitly paving over the old universe. Technically, the Abramsverse doesn't do this either; there's no direct indication that the universe that Futurespock comes from really IS the prime universe. It very well may not be.
