Whatever one may say of Quesada, I don't see how you could argue that Marvel became less, not more, writer-driven during the last decade. The Ultimate line? Writer-driven. New X-Men? Writer-driven. Astonishing X-Men? Writer-driven. Civil War? Writer-driven. Pretty much everything Bendis, Millar, Brubaker, Ellis, etc. did in that period was writer-driven (or at least equally driven by both), despite a few artist-driven vanity projects like Onslaught Reborn.
The Spider-Man image is possibly a storyline where Miles travels back in time a year or so and meets Ultimate Peter Parker, though I suppose they could already be bringing the latter back. I doubt there's actually going to be a 616/Ultimate crossover.
