That's certainly part of it for some people. Not for me, because I don't have such a drawer -- only a tiny part of a drawer.

I'm not knowledgeable enough to comment about what's technically possible. But there are some pretty nice UWA DX lenses put out by third parties, and I can only assume that Nikon could produce superior lenses of equivalent focal-length and aperture ranges if they chose to.

Mostly, though, my interest is in evaluating the here-and-now because no one seems to guess very accurately what Nikon is going to do in the future with regard to lenses.

To some degree I think it is. But there are also sensor differences that apply at any FOV, to a greater or lesser extent depending on your subject matter and light level.
