I think the deal was that the line to which you refer was part of an earlier version of the script, but had been removed by the time filming started. I remember that one of the writers (Orci, iirc) was quoted as saying he would have liked to have kept it in.
Yeah, I read that in an interview in the Star Trek magazine.
Too bad, that was a cool concept.
Yeah, that is a cool concept. Like the timeline is some type of intelligent being trying to heal itself. Wish ours would heal itself so I can be somewhere else.

I've never been a fan of this destiny business in the film. I'm happy the line was omitted.
Neither am I, but it would have been preferable to the old band of the TOS crew showing up on the Enterprise by a series of incredibly staggering coincidences. Suggesting that's the timeline working mysteriously to heal parts of itself would at least be acknowledging the nature of the coincidences in an effort, however half-hearted, to explain them.

Oh well. When I first watched the film I got no impression there were two timelines anyway, to be honest - it's worded carefully so that interpretation might be drawn from it (as O&K insist) or it could just be seen as time being rewritten again.
I'VE come to accept the new timeline as wholly separate in most respects from the old, classic and well-trodden one. I guess in the TREK universe they might be the same in some quantum respects but for the sake of the audience's sanity and even many Trekkers' we should just consider this movie the start of a new and uncorrected timeline that skewed BACK TO THE FUTURE II-style from the original one and exists in its own right.

If the timeline can heal it's self, will Vulcan go back together?
Yeah, that's the plot of the next movie. Khan detonates the Genesis Device, destroys the universe, and it reassembles correctly.

And then Christopher Lloyd's Commander Kruge rigs a Bird-of-Prey with a Mr. Fusion and hits 88 light years per hour so he can go back to 2233 and prevent Nero from ever arriving to begin with.
