There's no reason for the general audience to notice or care about either of these points. The movie says Cap is 'The First Avenger' that's all they'll care about- Cap, Ironman and Thor and whomever else they cast will be the founding Avengers.
"First" implies he was active before everybody else which is true.

Second I doubt most people know who the Avengers are and their back story. Outside of Marvel's marketing, there was no expectation that Cap be in the Avengers.
Nor any expectation that he wouldn't. It's Marvel's playground, so unless you've got the money to buy Marvel from Disney or both together he's going to be a founding member of the Avengers.
