Marvel's publishing isn't worth 4 billion dollars. Its characters are. Disney has little interest marketing Miramax content in its theme parks or tv properties. You're never gonna see Hannah Montana in L'il Kill Bill. Miramax is all about attracting "hip" film making talent to provide content to an adult audience. Do you honestly think Disney is all that interested in any of Marvel's talent. No way. It's the character library.

If and when(I'm pretty certain it's inevitable) Marvel's characters are fully incorparted into Disney themeing, Disney is going to protect those properties like a mofo. Marvel publishing will have to answer to the Mouse, and the Mouse will be very risk averse and less likely to try out controversial stories with its characters.

Plus the Weinstiens bailed on Miramax at least in part because they were getting sick of having to fight off Disney's interference.

While it may not be entirely for the worse, and there can be some good things that come out of this, there's no way that things are going to be business as usual at The House of Ideas. Whether that's good or bad has to deal mostly with your own personal taste.
