...if the post-Disassembled Hawkeye still buys into the whole "Avengers don't kill" idea, he's going to steer very, very clear from anything having to do with the Initiative. In West Coast Avengers, Englehart made this a vital part of his character that I'd hate to see disappear, and Busiek reinforced it in Avengers Forever. Meanwhile, the Initiative (and, by proxy, Mighty Avengers) have no problem killing off dozens of Hydra agents. Unless Disassembled and House of M rejiggered his moral code, Hawkeye wouldn't have it.

I agree that he'd be a New Avenger, but I'm not sure if the "Avengers don't kill" mentality is going to be his main reason. After all, while your points are valid when concerning the Initiative and the Mighty Avengers (the latter had no problems killing those monsters, and you have a god of war and a super spy, plus somebody who ripped Carnage in half)you have to remember two things about the New Avengers. The first is Wolverine. The second is Ronin. Now I'm going to have to go back and check, but i seem to remember that during their fights with the Hand, Ronin was slicing through a lot of those ninjas. I don't remember if any were killed or not, but again, i'll have to check. Just something to think about.
