    I do so wish JMS could return and do his long wanted retcon of that

It seems to have been retconned by default. Osborn never mentions their affair or the twins. You would think he would every chance he could get just to psychologically torture Peter.

Actually you'd be wrong. It is mentioned again. Gabriel Stacy was a test subject of and Harry Osborn's replacement in the American Son program. See Amazing Spider-Man #595-599 and Amazing Spider-Man Presents: American Son #1-3.

But also post One More Day, Osborn doesn't remember that Peter Parker was Spider-Man until Amazing #797, so prior to that point. He didn't remember the connection with Gwen Stacy until after he was reminded about how he killed her. Since then Osborn has been a little preoccupied being manipulated by the Carnage symbiote that last a little while.

Really, I think that at the end of the day, the Sins Past storyline has run its course. During that run Peter made peace with the fact that Gwen had cheated on him. Following the American Son debacle, I wouldn't be surprised if Norman has written off the Stacy twins as failures in much the same way he has written off Harry in recent years as well.

It's a failed plot in other words and if you follow Norman Osborn's track record, when one method of trying to break Spider-Man fails, he moves on to another scheme.
