It does seem really odd, especially if the movie is set in the past as it will be a dead end because...well you know. So how does it feed into the next big story arc of Phase IV through VI?
Mind you it could just simply be a really good spy thriller which stands by itself or sets up Master of Kung Fu - especially since Shang Chi's comic frequently flirted with the spy genre.
IMO, it is also due to hiring Scarlett Johansson in the first place, one of the most bankable actresses in the world, only to let her play a secondary protagonist in the MCU movies.
She appeared in 7 MCU movies and, yet, the character doesn't really have her own story-arc in any of them.
(Yet, she was excellent in Winter Soldier)
Even Natalie Portman's Jane Foster (who is only supporting cast) had her own story-arc in Thor 1 and Dark World.
Also, the future movie may have more than one Black Widow around ...
