I think Bond's 'jumping on point', is more of a fictional construct. What really changes? There's some lip service...they use the first story, but that's really about it. It's certainly not like Bond Begins or anything.
A movie doesn't have to be an origin story to provide people a jumping on point for a long-running franchise. It simply needs to strip the concept itself down to its basic components.
I would (and I'm sure Bond fans love to hear this) call it 3/4rths The Bond Identity and 1/4rth Dalton's Bond.

But I still love it. And absolutely adore Casino Royale. Just so there's no confusion.
