Orci Talks New Directions

Despite there being no script and no meaningful leaks on what direction the writers are going in, the talk of Khan continues as this recent interview with Star Trek Writer and Producer Roberto Orci attests to. Long story short, nothing has been determined but they are not opposed to the idea (personally I don't see it happening). Snippets below, full interview here.
Nrama: Now that you know people are happy with the reboot, are you guys coming up with more nods to the series to stick in there? Do you feel like you can do more of that now?
Orci: Yeah, you know, because we do our homework, and now the whole team has done their homework and read a bunch of stuff, you can't help but have that bubble up. Because you invariably come to some situation and say, 'Someone should come in and, oh! It should be...oh! That's perfect!' We don't even have to try for that at this point. As we go through the story, the story will tell us what needs to come out and hopefully we'll still have the knowledge accumulated to do it justice.

Nrama: Sooo, are we admitting anything about Khan yet...?
Orci: [shakes head] Cause in a way, even if we do Khan, or not, we're trying to approach the story as just what's best for it, and then can that character become Khan or not, you know. You're not trying to rely on previous knowledge or love of it, so you almost want to strip all the names away and just come up with the emotional forces and the scientific forces that are going to come into play, and then start letting the details kind of bleed in.

Nrama: So, Shatner accepting a Scream Award for JJ Abrams...does that mean anything? That he might show up in the sequel?
Orci: Well, we wrote a scene for him in the first one and I got outvoted in terms of where it ended up. I'll write another one and we'll see what happens. [laughs]
