... was thinking that if a new top end DX Af module were in the wings for the D300 replacement then it would have been cheaper for Nikon to use the existing module in the D7000 rather than a slightly dumbed down one to fall between the D90 (basically D200) and D300.

Nikon may have finished all their runs with the CAM3500DX. If so, then all the future bodies will likely use the D7000's new AF module, and the "D400" would use a new state of the art AF module. Not that this would mean anything in terms of when the "D400" will be announced, Nikon might have warehouses full of D300s cameras right now and demand was already tapering off for the D300s before the D7000 was announced.
