Yes they did.

When they released the D700 they raised the bar too high and maybe canabilised D3 sales.

Not really.   By the time the D700 came along, D3 sales would have slowed down.  Those who bought the D700 were never going to pay the money the D3 was going for.

I imagine they don't want to do that again, hence the stronger differentiation between the current line.

That's a flawed argument.  If they are going to withhold a D700 successor to force people to buy a D4, then it ain't gonna happen.  They'll just encourage people to jump ship to Canon.  That's why there are so many former Nikon people popping up on the Canon forums.

You want prod body fast? D4.

Or a 5D3.
