Also, the Red Dragon's last words fell along the lines of "Our souls are eternal, so we will meet each other again," possibly hinting at Ruby, though that may only leave room for more questions (so Red is reincarnated, but not Quark? WTF?!).
As for Nall's reaction, perhaps it may implied that he realized that this Red was...well, those Dragon had to come from somewhere, right?
Again, more questions, but we can discuss more about that on a later time.
While this was also mentioned in the PSX game, SSH does make it clear to you that the four Dragons WILL NOT be coming back from the Grindery...alive, at least. In their current state.

Way ahead of you, man!
I'll get right on that! (I had it completed some time ago, but I can't seem to find it on my computer...odd...)
