D400..Waiting for new sensor technology?

I think Nikon is waiting to upgrade the D300(s) until entirely new and novel sensor technology is available...such as an A/D converter at each photo site through the use of new "bump-bonded" 3 dimensional chip circuitry. Think additional circuitry in layers BEHIND the photosites.

Current sensors are currently bound to a 2 dimensional (flat) design with a lot of the supporting circuitry connected to the edges. If this were relieved, entirely different sensor processing schemes could be developed.

Several years away....
