I've been pasting this comment everywhere. Nikon referred to this specifically as:

" a middle-class DX-format D-SLR..."

Interpret that as you see fit.

'I remember when the days were long
And the nights when the living room was on the lawn:
Constant quarrelling, the childish fits,
And our clothes in a pile on the ottoman;
All the slander and doublespeak
Were only foolish attempts to show you did not mean
Anything but the blatant proof
Was your lips touching mine in a photobooth.'

Not sure where that quote came from, but for what it is worth here is how Nikon's website currently reads:

"The new flagship of Nikon's DX-format HD-SLR lineup."

http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product/Digital-SLR-Cameras/1513/D7100.html

That's the US website.  The Japanese and corporate Nikon website describes the D7100 as its "middle-class" DX body.  The US is engaging in some flagship-for-the-current-moment hyperbole without checking with headquarters.  Given the D7100's buffer size, there's room for a D300s, though it would need an Expeed 4 or at the minimum greater processor horsepower to handle the increased framerate and resolution.
