My point is that some people say TPTB should have done A instead of B, implying that A would have received wider approval than B, when the likelihood is that the only thing that would have changed would have been the nature of the complaints.

NuSpock contacts PrimeSpock = a contrived, cheap cameo
NuSpock doesn't contact PrimeSpock = NuSpock has this unique resource that might be able to provide insight and he's -not- using it?
Which is exactly why it should've been a clean reboot. Having that tie to the prime universe cheapens the whole new universe.
Except that a lot of people like the idea that the timeline diverged from what it was "supposed" to be. Myself included.
