The Bourne Legacy trailer; a slap in Matt Damon's face?

It looks like Universal wants the last laugh in the Bourne reboot debacle.  After The Bourne Ultimatum (the third film in the franchise), star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass decided not to stick around.  Check out the trailer and see my thoughts below.

Well?  A part of me thinks it's a slap in Matt Damon's face to use the character for nothing more than a reason to reboot the franchise.  HOWEVER; it's pretty clever how the studio blatantly uses Damon's character to continue the story with a new lead, Jeremy Renner.  What are your thoughts?  Shady or clever?
