You are referring to Canon primarily and they were guilty of using a plastic chassis with magnesium shells. Which is akin to putting "whipped cream on a horse biscuit".. My Nikon D200, D2x are ALL magnesium as is the case in some of the newer Canon mid class cameras

Just how many digital SLRs have you heard of that fell apart because they were not 100% metal shells? I certainly haven't heard of any.

Hand held devices should be designed with the latest materials, not materials from WW II. If I'm going to carry an SLR in my hand or around my shoulder for house, I want it to be as light as possible and still durable. Heavy cameras cause health problems.
