The existence of a thread like this is proof that EON has gone overboard with trying to stuff the films full of references to the previous films. Strangely, those films shouldn't even exist in the timeline that the Craig films are supposedly operating in.
This is a fundamental problem with the films under the current EON regime that needs to be corrected for the long-term health of the franchise. Eventually they're going to have to come up with new iconic moments for later films to reference, otherwise Bond is going to turn into one of those oldies bands that just tours playing their old hits and never offers up anything new. We're getting dangerously close to that territory now, which is rather sad considering we're only four films into this supposed "reboot".
That was my biggest pet peeve when it comes to QoS and Skyfall, although-- in my humble opinion-- SPECTRE has thankfully toned down the references at least somewhat. The references in SPECTRE are not nearly as overt as, say, Fields covered in oil, or Bond's line to Q: "You must be joking."
Only really offensive reference in SPECTRE was the return of the DB5 which, oddly enough, made its already-bothersome inclusion in Skyfall even worse by negating the plot point and symbolism behind the car's destruction. Oh well.
To be honest, as much as I love the DB5's appearances in GF and TB, and I can at least tolerate it in GE and CR, I'd be more than happy to never see the car in a Bond film ever again. It is really too much at this point.
