> would the 70-300 be overkill due to the weight, which would most likely lead me to the purchase of the 55-200 VR.

I may not be the most relevant opinion, since I'm willing to haul around some really heavy gear. But I rarely notice the weight of a 70-300 - the size is much more prominent. The total weight of the D5000 and 70-300 is significantly less than a lot of womens' purses, so unless your wife is very sensitive to this, I doubt that it would be an issue.
