Re: What about the D7000?

No, I think there's a reason Nikon updated the D300 to a D300s and upgraded the D3 to a D3s this last year, they wanted to hold their ground (even if only mostly in a symbolic way with the D300s) with those two models until they were ready for the full "D4/D400" upgrade. The D7000 does nothing to rain on that party, other than possibly drizzle a little on the sensor if Nikon uses the same one in the "D400," which is why I'm also thinking that the "D400" actually won't use the same sensor as the D7000.

3 DX sensors and a FX sensor in less then a year window

Who says? If the "D4" and "D400" are announced in August and don't hit the streets until September or later, then that will be over a year since the D3100 was announced and nearly a year after the D7000 has been available. It's not as if all four cameras were announced in one day.

D3100, D7000, D400 and D4 Hmm nikon is way to small a company to spin that many versions.

Announced in 2008: D3x, D90, D700, & D60
Announced in 2009: D3s, D300s, D3000, D5000

As for what sensors are used in each of those cameras, who cares? Sony cranks out sensors, and Nikon has their own proprietary sensors. Most consumers don't care if there is a different sensor in a D3100, D7000, and "D400;" photographers will choose the camera that suits their needs and Nikon has been very good at delivering those tools to them.
