DSLRs are today's floppy disc. Companies like Nikon would be well advised to leave the vestigial technology behind and focus on the future of photography.

Also, one of the MAJOR reasons why floppy disc are gone is because the size of the programs typically stored on those discs were huge in comparison to the storage available on the disk forcing the program to use a box or three just for one program. The same thing happened to their successor, the CD-ROM, just before hight speed internet caused the removable media downfall.

DSLRs don't have such a constraint at this point in time.  Really the only thing pushing DSLRs out the door is the desire for some people to have the latest.
