While it's certainly nice to have a camera with 2 card slots, there was a time when we only had one and that didn't stop folks from using them.  When the pro level camera came out with 2 slots, most folks still used 1 and it worked out fine.  Not saying that no one never had an issue but the number of issues were not so large that everyone would need 2 slots.  Having multiple bodies to me is better than multiple slots.  I'm not saying I would never have a camera with 2 slots however, to date I have not had a card failure but I did have my D300 with SB-900 attached, lock up (flash over heated and both stopped working for a bit) during an event I shot and was happy I had my D200 with the SB-800 with me to keep on shooting until the other camera was ok to use again.

It's great to have the option but to say any camera that do not have that capability is "lowly" is a stretch.
