As far as I can tell the "rep" on the 16-85mm is exactly what you've found. "Nice lens, but doesn't offer enough value over the later kit lenses," which may be why rumors of a replacement have been circulating for over a year now.

Which will probably be even more expensive - touching (surpassing?!) the used price of a 17-55 f/2.8.
