As interesting an idea as that is, it isn't going to happen. Nikon has always had a high/low strategy in their product segments, and an FX D400 doesn't fit for a bunch of different reasons (price point, BIF/sports user requirements, etc.). If they had call the D600 a D8000 (which would make more sense to me), then maybe they'd hint at something like that. But they didn't because it doesn't make sense.
