Are you implying that the Nikon 70-200 / 2.8 was designed for the
cropped sensors of Nikon cameras at the time of it's release?

I'd use the word 'optimised' rather than 'designed', but yes, that's exactly what I'm saying, with some faily extensive explanation in the review.

That's
really quite surprising, if that's what you're saying.

Well, I think it's a perfectly understandable design decision, bearing in mind that at the time all the Nikon cameras were DX, and all the noises coming out from Nikon suggested that full frame wasn't even on their horizon.
