Magnesium alloy body? Weather sealing? Water and dust resistant? ...

So, how important is all these? magnesium alloy body? weather sealing? water and dust resistant? ...

The 7D is all magnesium alloy but in D7000 only top and the rear of the camera is magnesium alloy, do you think that it's an important factor in choosing between these two?

Also I read somewhere that because of the heavy weight of lenses, usually the lens mount is more at risk than other parts... is that true?

I was comparing Canon 7D and Nikon D7000 and I noticed DPreview has mentioned "Water and Dust resistant" for D7 but for D7000 it says "Weather and dust resistant"... do they also have different weather sealing?

Canon EOS 7D Nikon D7000
