Why would I get V1/J1 over a good P&S ?

Nikon 1 clearly is aiming at p&s users to move up, but not necessarily to DSLR sizes and complexity.

I would actually choose a fast p&s now such as the the Nikon P300 (at $249), that gets the job done (or LX5, S100, if one could afford a bit more $$), then wait a year or two before I eventually plunge in the 1 market (more lens and model choices then, at hopefully cheaper prices).
