Delayed answer, but it's probably just Kadokawa. The Shuffle Manga ran in Kadokawa's Comptiq magazine, which is also where Lucky Star runs. Also note that Kadokawa's actively marketing Shuffle Memories DVDs at the moment. All the little references like that you saw in Haruhi also had to do with Kadokawa. A little bit of subtle or not-so-subtle cross-promotion on their part.
