If not a complete ignoring of The Last Stand, at most a mere passing mentioning
I think it's too late for that.
Not at all. Consider the Back to the Future series: once Marty takes his first trip into the past, we never again see the original timeline, only the dark timeline, the improved timeline, and the really improved (or so we hope) timeline. In Parts II and III, moreover, we never see the original timeline at all.

So, if X:TLS was the original timeline, DOFP could start with the arrival of a traveler from the dark future, and, thanks to his/her meddling, the cast could repair things more than they intend, setting up an improved non-original timeline in which X3 is all but forgotten... forever.
