Well Nikon can provide sraw along with higher fps with D800/E to meet your needs. I am not sure if they will. As far as its af is concerned it is top notch.
So instead of asking Nikon for another body, people can start demanding a 'paid' firmware upgrade to give higher fps n smaller images, even tho free will be better!
Which would you rather chose?

I don't think this can be done with a firmware upgrade to the D800 though because I doubt the D800 mirror can go 8fps

I am sure D800/E body is not the limiting factor to flap the mirror (it can already flap at 1/8000 of a second).

The mirror creates some lag before the shutter engages, that's why we have shutter lag, but 1/8000s is a function of the shutter, not the mirror.  Getting a mirror to raise up 8 times a second is often a hardware limitation and that's why it takes a larger battery to get the D700 and D300 to reach those higher fps.
