Totally agree.

The biggest jump in IQ is from an old DX (eg D300) to a new FX system at high ISO and DR.

Wow, the D300 is hardly "old" DX.
In some ways the OP's heading is correct.

D2x -> D300 you gained about 1.6 EV

D300 -> D7000 - you gained about 0.7 EV, but a nice little boost at base ISO 100.

All other things being equal, FX will always have an advantage of more than 1 EV over Dx.

Of course if you believed every claim made in these forums about every new camera since the D1, we'd all be shooting at ISO 1,000,000.
