I'm not sure if I buy these excuses. Do people really use cameras for 10-15 years in the digital era? I really doubt many will be using these things four or five generations of camera from now. In terms of the wifi standards changing. That is true to some extent but things tend to be backwards comptable. Devices of mine that are about a decade old still work fine with new wireless networks. They might not be able to work at the speed a new router is capable of but they still work just fine. Certatinly I'd expect a new camera's wifi system to be comptable with what we will be using 3-5 years from now at minimum.

People love to think up excuses to defend Nikon - or whichever their favourite manufacturer happens to be.

Nikon realise they can get people who buy D4 level cameras to pay extra money for expensive add-ons to get features they need - and selling those is profitable to Nikon. I suspect they will likely only move on including these features on this level camera when their main competitor does.

We have a winner. Isn't it obvious? It's the same reason cheap motels have more amenities included than five-star hotels frequented by the rich and business travelers. They know they have a captive audience with fat wallets (in this case, D4s and D800/D600 buyers) and want to take full advantage.
