Nikon upgrade to V2 !!??

OK, the V1 is a stunning piece of small camera with lots and lots of versatile possibilities when coupled to the FT-1.
So why should Nikon upgrade/improve the camera to-lets say- a V2!

I mean, the arrival of the V1 probably caused some people to change their minds of buying a two times more expensive and bulkier DSLR. So from this point of view Nikon lost some DSLR users in the market. (most of them still use a DSLR besides their V1 though)

So when Nikon dicides to upgrade/improve an already impressive camera I think even more people are going for this improved V1 version (V2?!)

My question: Why should Nikon upgrade/improve the V1 and would you buy it over a DSLR?

(I want to upgrade from D80, but this small bugger confuses me. Should I buy the V1 over D700 (D800 is to much for me right now) My photographic interest lies in a wide range of subjects as you can see on my website.

I currently own:
Nikon D80
Nikkor 300 Af-s f/4
Nikkor 18-200mm VRI
Sigma 105mm DX macro
