It could be a replacement if you replace a D200 with it. There are many photographers who have found that as new cameras come out, they can get away with replacing higher-end bodies with lower-end ones. A lot of Canon shooters, for example, replaced their EOS-1D Mark II bodies (a camera that was in between the D2H and D3 in performance) with the EOS-7D (a camera that is similar to the D300 but newer and arguably higher spec'd).

It all comes down to what satisfies a given user. I am seriously considering replacing both my D1x and new D90 (which I bought for a certain gig) with a D7000. There are things that the D1x does better (faster AF, better viewfinder, built-in grip, more durable, PC and remote terminals, higher flash sync speed mainly). But I'm willing to compromise because I think I can get away with it. With a partially magnesium body, AI lens compatability, and an optional grip, the D7000 comes quite close in many ways, and beats the D1x in most other ways. The D200 is a bit harder to beat. If I had a D200 instead, I probably would not replace it with a D7000 (though I might supplement it with one).
