I assumed it was a jarring interruption of the major arc at that time just to make it all the more surprising. Shows you what I know about writing.
I think JMS certainly looks to use the supprize factor on his favour in making sure that the characters themselves are caught as off guard by it as the viewer.

As was said earlier in the thread the flash forward to Centauri Prime does play into the existing plot well well. Its basically the first step in revealing the shift in the story that's going to take place away from "will we beat this ultimate evil?" to "how, why and at what cost do we get though this?".
