    I definitely don't agree. Scott really hasn't spent any time trying to make up for anything. In his favour, at least, he's no longer claiming to be proud of what he did under Phoenix's influence and that he'd do it again. Scott still hasn't really changed tactics from his X-Force thing, which was why Kurt quit the team before being killed. And Kurt still believes in Logan's way of choice over Scott's dictatorship.

Skipping the irrelevant Scott bashing.

You missed the point. And ignored the decisions of most of the mutants during the Schism. It wasn't choosing Scott or Logan's way, it was (for most of them) picking where they'd prefer to live or where they felt they were needed. (Remember, most of the JGS wanted to help Cyclops against the Avengers in AVX)

I want to see the Kurt/Scott conversation because I don't believe words like dictator would be used. I actually think that had he lived, Nightcrawler would have considered staying on the island because Scott needed help staying on the right path. I also think he would have tried to talk Logan down from his position, not talk him out of opening the school, but in not being as closed off from those who stayed on the island (like when he didn't want to tell the island that Exodus was going to kill Scott).

Also given his action the last few minutes of his life, I think Kurt would have wanted to stay to help Hope.

Although I also believe he would have joined Logan when "No More Avengers" started up and stayed at the school after AVX.

    It seemed that ever since the shocker that they kept Sabretooth locked up in the X-basement the practice of selectively imprisoning X-villains, in a "cell" or somesuch, by the X-men themselves has become a (debatable) way of life for them.

Remember, in Legacy after Exodus was beaten he was taken to Utopia's prison (and then forgotten by every writer since). If the JGS had any type of cell they'd have kept him there, instead of letting him be held so close to his target.
