I' m sure the FX based successor will provide the DX needs by changing the viewfinder technology. My guess is we are going to see a hi res FX sensor with a hybrid viewfinder: electronic for hi speed and full sized dx view, and traditional viewfinder for situations demanding the brightness of it.

The D800 and D4 (and very possibly other Nikon FX cameras) can dim out the VF outside the DX boundary when the cameras are set in DX mode. There is no need to change technology for this purpose.

And then you've got a tiny viewfinder.  Who wants to spend several thousand dollars ($3k-$6k) on a camera and use it primarily with cropped miniature viewfinder.  That's a non-starter for your main use.  I'm surely not spending good money for that.  An upgraded camera should be better than the one I'm using now!
