I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case. It's only when you start thinking about Khan that you realize he's hard to work into a movie from scratch. Too much explanation and setup needed, so you'd have to focus and simplify him so much, you'd end up with someone closer to Mitchell or Garth anyway.
What would be so hard to explain about Khan? Section 31 (which will be a part of the movie, I'm absolutely sure) found some frozen, genetically engineered super human from the past drifting in space and somehow made him angry. Now he will have his vengeance. That would probably take 10 seconds of screen time, 30 seconds if they are using flashbacks.
