Aside from all of that:

Based on what we know now, it's virtually certain that the rule Kirk breaks which gets him into trouble is broken in order to save Spock's life. That doesn't make him a "bad boy" and it doesn't owe a thing directly to Kirk's current image in popular culture - it descends directly from similar behavior in TOS.
Why would Uhura and Scott also be separated from the Enterprise as well over the possible Prime Directive violation done by Kirk?

If Kirk got the boot for saving Spock, then I agree that it is different than continuing the bad boy angle.
