In terms of the way that the term reboot is defined in terms of serialized fiction...

Then I guess it was a good thing that I put the term "reboot" in quotes, to indicate that I was using the term loosely in a time travel context and not in the sense that you define it.

Singer also just went on record stating that he is not ignoring any of the existing stories with DoFP, although both First Class and The Wolverine appear to have already ignored Origins: Wolverine, so we'll have to see what happens with DoFP for sure.
Which sounds not that dissimilar from what I posited:

From what I've read, and I'm probably not the first to make this guess, but I think the producers are going to use the time travel/ripple effect concept to "reboot" the franchise and "fix" some of the continuity, not to mention undo at least some of what happened in X3.
In other words, all the films will still "exist" and be tied together but the time travel will change some things going forward and perhaps retroactively (some of the continuity differences between films and the spin offs).
