There is also the fact that the film said Spock's emergence point was in the Neutral Zone.
...A location historically established as teeming with Klingon warships!
Again, you're thinking of the wrong Neutral Zone. Besides, even if the Romulan Neutral Zone were 'teeming with Klingon warships', it wouldn't be teeming with Klingon prison planets. It wouldn't be in Klingon space. If the prison break plotline is discarded, Nero would have had no reason to be in Klingon space at all, unless it was just for the hell of it.

Nero's arrival point isn't even in the Klingon Neutral Zone. It's on the Federation side of the border, where the Kelvin had reason to be. From the IMSDB script: how far are we from the Klingon Neutral Zone? This is why the suggestion that the anomaly could be Klingon in nature is heard being challenged early in the Kelvin sequence. With one arrival point being in a Neutral Zone and the other not being in a Neutral Zone, we know they are not the same location from that alone. We can also see this simply by observing the surroundings of the two arrival points in the film. There is no apparent nearby star in the vicinity of Spock's arrival point.
