a D300 matrix metering question

I have seen several posts of people who have received their d300's who say that the matrix metering of the D300 seems to give more weight to the focus point and to the shadows thus causing blown highlights under some circumstances. This has also been a frequent complaint about the matrix metering of D80 owners.

So, does the D300 deal with matrix metering more like the D80 and less like the

D200? And if it does do you think this shows a change in Nikon's approach as to what they think is more important in matrix metering (shadows vs highlights)?
