On the contrary.

In this thread, and in many others, it's been convincingly pointed out over and over again many reasons why there is no need for the nu-timeline to depict the same warp physics as was shown in the TOS era. Several convincing cases have been put forth in this thread in the past few pages, so I won't bother linking to them. I will add to them, though (or rather, bring up one point that I find particularly significant, which, no doubt, has been brought up before in this context).

In The Menagerie, in the flashback footage of The Cage, we have the dialog:

SURVIVOR: Is Earth all right?
PIKE: The same old Earth, and you'll see it very soon.
TYLER: And you won't believe how fast you can get back. Well the time barrier's been broken. Our new ships can
That suggests quite plainly that advancements in warp physics occurred in the old-Trek TOS timeline, between the years 2236 and 2254. But the Kelvin was destroyed in STXI, in 2233, before this suggested revision in warp physics occurred. So, in TOS's own terms, wouldn't it be more far-fetched to assume that warp physics would the same after the temporal incursion of 2233 as it was in the TOS timeline?
