I still suspect Nikon is not fronting a D400 because it puts them right up against a similarly specified 7D or successor and they do not put cameras at identical prices up against their rivals. Whether by agreement or not. The reason being the rival cameras tended to straddle each other's price gaps. E.g. when the D300 came out, it was more expensive and higher specification than the 40D which was in turn more expensive and higher specification than the D90.

Perhaps Nikon think pricing the D400 where they want to, would put in in an unfavourable light next to the 7D. Even the D300s is wildly more expensive than the 7D right now, when I am sure it produces inferior images. I don't know if this reflects Nikon ceasing production.

Nikon now classes the D300s as a limted supply model , maybe thats why its price is  steep ...
