There have been rumours that yes "Alias" was originally supposed to be about Jessica Drew not Jones but as RDJ has stated I think Bendis has denied this.
I did some checking. In a 2005 interview he said this:
  • Originally, "Alias" was going to star Jessica Drew, but it became something else entirely. Which is good, because had we used Jessica it would have been off continuity and bad storytelling. So, when we were putting together "New Avengers," I put her because I had all these ideas for her and thought this was a place where I could finally do it and no one will be mad or care. She's an interesting female character who hasn't seen the light of day in a while and I think she's got this great costume. Then, all of a sudden this happens!
