Prosumer FX body in 2010?

If the rumours are to be believed, we will have a new Nikon designed 16-18mp sensor in a D700 style body announced early next year (along with new primes!), or perhaps it will be the D3X sensor, and that has obviously been debated in several threads.

It also seems reasonable to expect the D3S sensor to make its way into the smaller body size at some point in 2010 as well (i.e. D700s).

I wonder would Nikon then logically look to parlay the existing D3/D700 sensor into a D90 style body, perhaps at around $1,200 - $1,500? It would be unique in the market (high ISO FX in a light consumer body ), and presumably quite a revenue generator for them. A useful backup body option for many.
