Though I'd love to have VR with all my lenses, it's a rather complex system. My only concern would be that if it was in the body and it broke, it could very well render the entire body useless (and make for a very expensive repair). At least on a lens you can just stop using the offending lens. Since I can't really afford (literally or figuratively) to have a body that suddenly becomes useless, I'll settle for VR in the lens.
By the way, if Nikon is not including an AF motor in the camera body (e.g. D40, D60), there's no way they'll add VR.
