This is a reason why we need multiple titles, and as many titles as can be supported. If the market can support 15 X-Books, then pump out 15 X-Books. I know the current market can't, but I'm just saying.

Overall, I really don't feel this way. "New" and "different" should only come once in a great while, with things mostly staying consistent. Groups should be primarily of tightly-knit friends/family that are committed to each other in perpetuity. A newbie can join, once every 5 or so years.

Frankly, I don't want a month to ever go by without a team of Storm, Jean (now that she's back), Rogue, and Colossus (from your list) and quite a few other long-time mainstays.

I also think we need a second X-Men team for the second class cool guys, mostly doing their own thing.

I'd like a team of younger mutants doing their own thing, but not in a school setting, sort of like old school X-Force. Just not those O5 teens. Okay, we're getting a roster change, but I only like Polaris on it.

A school can be cool too. Avengers Academy worked, imo.

And then we should probably have a kind of blackops team like X-Force.

Lastly, some other titles that can only barely be called X-Books -- like Excalibur, X-Factor (Investigations), Exiles, etc.

I totally agree that there are characters who are indispensable and because of tradition and popularity we can not eradicate them at all, but I would open doors to others, coexisting with the classics. My options would be the following:
X-Men: with the founding members, the originals, not those displaced by time, those eliminate them once, they do not contribute anything to me anymore. In their day it was good and it was original, but for me, they are already tired. Classical mutant Marvel stories.
Uncanny X-Men: the classic Claremonth X-Men (Storm, Rogue, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Wolverine, Kitty, etc ...) It worked before and it still works now. They are indispensable. With stories a little darker and more realistic.
X-Factor: with Rusty and Skids, natural heirs of the original X-Factor. They would be joined by high-end secondaries like Caliban, Pixie, Anole and Rockslide.
X-Force: emulating the X-Force of the 90s, with Cable, X-23, Warpath, Domino, Deadpool, Betsy ....
X-Academy or something like that, with the old New Mutants teaching the millenials.
Mutants: this is the name that Stan Lee was originally going to give the X-Men. It would be based on stories from Havok, Polaris, Quicksilver and other secondary ones that populate the X-universe, facing real situations without really being a team.
