I do think there's a pattern here, and it has to do with being competitive. The D700 came out to compete with the 5D/5DII because the D3 was too expensive for many who would then choose the Canon option. The same reasoning is behind the D800 which competes against the 5DIII and A99; there is no more need for a D700 successor in Nikon's lineup because it is bracketed by the D610 and D800.

5D III & D800 were released a month apart. The Canon ended up substantially more versatile with 6fps & its focus system. In that they were probably spurred on by the D700. Funny because Nikon themselves decided not to approach pro-spec with anything less but their most expensive camera anymore.
