just put the D600 sensor in a D800 body and most of us will be happy I guess

I totally get what you are wanting.  However, I don't see how Nikon can do what you would like and maintain a differentiation in product pricing.  The sensor cost is mostly based on the area of the silicon wafer.  So the cost of this D600 + D800 / 2 is going to basically be the cost of the D800.

So if Nikon replaced the D600 with the new one you suggest then they will have lost the "entry level" FX model.  Unless you are suggesting that the D600 continues.  Which is a possibility, but it assumes Nikon wants to support 4 different FX bodies.  And 5 if there is a possibility that Nikon wants to make a D4x.
