I can't imagine any possible way they could have salvaged the "Picard has an evil twin" story to my satisfaction.

Bottom line is, Stewart probably had no interest in putting in the extra time and effort needed to play Shinzon, and he certainly had veto power if that idea ever did come up in discussions.
You're probably right, I'll have to check out the nemesis special features to see if this is confirmed somewhere.

On the other hand Brent Spiner seems to enjoy split screening different characters rather than having different actors play data's relatives. He pulls it off really well.
