Nikon pushed the ISO envelope last generation, now it has become an expectation in just about every camera

That was Sony (it is a Sony sensor and has been for a while). Nikon just packages them really nicely (a lot more nicely than Sony, who crippled their sensors with nearly a stop of light loss thanks to the fixed mirror).

Nikon designed, Sony built. Not like they are buying a stock Sony sensor.

They are doing the same thing now with resolution. We'll see where it goes, but the D800 is selling like hotcakes

See above.

They are being ordered like hot cakes, delivered is another thing entirely
