There are too many differences: Limited buffer, no 10 pin connector, smaller body, limited buttons, scene modes, and more more. This is a camera targeting the advanced amateur, or serious enthusiast, not the pro using the DX format.

Couldn't agree more with this statement. Also, based on the D7100's pricing as well as the current pricing of refurbished D600 's I am doubting where a D400 could fit into the lineup.

Perhaps this is Nikon's way of saying "if you want pro build and full pro specs - buy pro level" and (for now at least) that is FX D800/D4.
