"Because you demanded it...the last issue of the Dazzler!"
Yes, an obvious reference to the apparent failure of the comic (anyone with original copies, do the letters pages reference people getting tired of the series?)

A bit harsh in my opinion, but ultimately the end of the series was a necessity, for afterwards Alison would join the X-Men.

I've heard of authors/inkers/pencil/dialogue editor slipping scornful messages and in-jokes into their works, but has Marvel done anything similar to this example?

Still, not a bad run. 42 issues.

It might also be that the letters would be more along the lines of "She would be more interesting joining the X-Men", putting a positive spin on the cover?

Of course, there are a couple of good moments in there when she does, but IMHO characterwise she never recovers from X-Men Annual #11 when she's offered the choice of three possible "ultimate dream futures" to live in; 1) where she followed her father's dream and became a massively successful lawyer, 2) where she followed her own dream and becomes a massively successive rock star, and 3) where she never takes a risk with either of those dreams, and ends up a self-pitying bag-lady... and chooses option number 3.

The closest to this would be having the corner image of Spidey on the last issue of Marvel Team-Up declaring "I'm dead, Jim", and possibly the last issue of Transformers proclaiming it the 80th issue in a 4 issue limited series.
