I don't think they need a D40 and a D60. They just need the D60 close
to the current D40 price point. If that happens, then I think D60,
D90, D300, D3 is enough of a differentiated and competative lineup.

The strategy of bracketing Canon's models worked well with D40/D40X/D90. My bet is that D40 goes out of lineup early in 2009, D60 is priced at under 500USD and a Dxx whatever comes between the D60 and D90, with LV and 12MP sensor. D90 will be priced higher than 450D, likely 1000-1200, so the gap is too large, moreover now with Sony playing hardball in the 500-1000 USD price bracket.
