I would place DOF preview higher on the list of important items missing. Bracketing is only an issue if you are doing that HDR stuff, or if the camera has no other control over exposure. The argument that students need auto bracketing is silly becuase you wouldn't teach it that way?

That's two exercises in any "Intro to Photography" course the D40
owners will have to work around..

and DOF.. (though you can take a few seconds to check it in the LCD)

I wonder if any Community college courses will have to * the
approved equipment for photography classes

Students may bring any Film or Digital SLR to complete homework
(except Nikon D40 and D40x)

The cynical aspect of this is that Bracketing is all firmware.. no
extra parts needed.

Bracketing and DOF preview are hardly important features in any
photography course that I can imagine. Until I bought my D40x, my
camera of choice was a Nikon FE2. It too lacks those features, but
I have had no problems in any class I have attended with it and it
has been an absolutely wonderful camera. They would have to put
that on the list of non-approved cameras as well.
