It's just personal, because I'm not a fan of Gen. VI, aside from Midn. Lycanroc and so I hope no refereces to be made. I also didn't liked what they made with ASOR, namely the Sea Mauville, the tree in Sootopolis and Infinite Energy. I must correct one thing though: Fantina is in Gen. IV games, so if they retconned her nationality to Kalosian, I'd be fine with that.Why not? Just a small appearance in a remake wouldn't change much. Mina in LGPE wasn't too significant to alter the plot of that game, nor was any other cameo we've had between generations. Remakes referring to future entries in the series isn't strange either: Off the top of my head, we've had Steven and Maylene in HGSS, and Bruno being Brawly's teacher in FRLG.
A small cameo relating to Team Aether (or anyone from Gen 5 onwards, really) would be nice to have, just as a small inclusion to show Game Freak at least cares a little bit about continuity. I don't want team Aether to hijack the plot either, but they've had 13 years to expand the world of Pokemon since DPPt, and to not refer to any future games at all in other games feels extremely regressive and wasteful to me.
Looker had a main story role in Platinum, so I doubt they'll alter his role too much in the remake if they decide to incorporate aspects of Platinum into it.
I honestly find it worse how GF doesn't use their past in-game history elements, for example, in having SS Anne - a "world" cruiser - appear at another port city instead of only appearing in Kanto remakes or being just a model in the Slateport museum.
