"RE: best back-up for a D4 - your thoughts"

There is considerable wisdom already provided above, and I agree with all this. I use a D4 and D800, typically carrying both around on serious 'missions.' One element not addressed is the notion of reach, and its nullification with the D800's huge pixel density. While you can shoot in 'DX' mode, I cannot see any particular purpose in doing it, and instead utilize cropping liberally, especially when 'reach' is insufficient to fill the frame. In short, the D800 can be viewed as a super-D7100, and a super-D3x. The coverage and synergy between the two bodies is truly remarkable. My humble advice is, if you can stretch for the extra money for the D800 over the D600, you will not be sorry nor look back. If the funds are tight, and if you buy it anyway, you will love it just as much, though something must give on another front. It was an easy choice for me in any case.
All the best
