Probably because Nikon:

A.) Wants to be the first company to offer an FX body for under $2000.

B.) Wants to amortize the R&D they put into the D3x sensor (this one is likely an improved version of that base design).

C.) Wants to leverage the R&D effort they put into the D7000-size body. The D600 body will be similar, apparently.

And maybe they know something we don't (i.e. what Canon plans to launch in the near future).

And yes, $2000 makes a lot of sense. D800 at $3000, D600 at $2000, and D7000 at $1000.
