But that's the point: In "Last Crusade" when Indy teaches his archaeology class, he states "You do not follow maps to buried treasure and X never, ever, marks the spot.", which is of course even more funny when the he finds the knight's tomb in the Venice library under the X on the floor, and he's got to admit "X marks the spot...", and now even literally.
So, in a "Monkey Island" game, I'm PRETTY sure, this is referencing Indy.
