I have to disagree. I have a couple of 5-year-old D70s and couldn't see any good reason to upgrade to the D80. I think the D90 has a feature set that was worth the upgrade.
I have mixed feelings about the D7000 and am thinking of it like I did the D80. At least from my standpoint it doesn't offer any new features that really turn my crank although it obviously is an excellent camera. If buying new today I think I'd opt for the D7000 over the D90 because the price difference isn't that great, but certainly don't regret my decision to go with the D90 or my decision not to upgrade to the D80.
(I have two D70s that are five years old and I thought long and hard about the D80 but finally decided it just wasn't worth it.)
And as noted I don't think the price points between the D90 and D7000 is all that great.
