It doesn't make much difference whether he directs Trek 3 or not - no one's ever expected him to go on directing all of them; he wasn't even a sure thing a year and a half ago for the second one. What matters for now is that he and Bad Robot are running the show...
If I recall correctly, wasn't there some talk back in 2006 whether he would actually be directing the first one or not? He and Bad Robot were set to produce, but whether he would also direct was still a question at the time.
Yeah. Paramount didn't sign up Bad Robot just to get Abrams behind the camera. For example, after directing Mission Impossible III he produced but did not direct Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and everyone at the studio was very happy with that.
