Things to keep in mind:
Brian Michael Bendis wrote this scene, and Bendis was pretty much the ONLY current Marvel creator who, when interviewed about OMD/BND, DEFENDED the Peter/MJ marriage, when EVERYONE else was twisting themselves into knots to try and agree with Quesada.
So, rather than being a "Take That!" to the readers, I suspect that was actually a slam on OMD/BND itself.
Yeah, I know, right? For all the ways he fails, Bendis really does GET the Peter/MJ ship.
