Shutter count milage (what is good and what's not?)

What is the sweet spot for Nikon D200, D300, D100, D90, D80 etc in terms of shutter counts? This question is asked a lot and is provided a lot where used cameras are posted on places like Ebay.

But, what count is good and what count is getting into the not so good range? I recently bought a used D200 and at the same time, selling a D70 (also bought used).  Both cameras had roughly the same number of shutter counts (Approx 14,800).

With this count, would these both be considered high mileage cameras?  Both Cameras are in nearly flawless condition to look at, and seem to have been well cared for.
