Those would be nice. But, again, the most honest way to celebrate the contributions of the original actors is to include them in the special. Including objects and references just isn't showing the same appreciation.
I agree that would be the most ideal
, but to me it's not "disrespecting the past" if they aren't in there.
Of course for me just seeing images of the previous Doctors in Next Doctor was thrilling as hell, so I'm probably a bit more easy to please in that way (if all we got was just, say, a classic console room, I'd think the special would be worth it).
