Steve, why don't you think that the D7000 is not good enough to be classified "semi-pro"?
Until I just sold my D90, I had been using the D3/D300/D90 professionally. The D7000 appears to be a step up to the D90 at least and in many respects to the D300. I also used to shoot with the D200 professionally and the D90 far exceeds it in IQ for the type of work that I shot professionally. The D200 never made it into my pro bag for two years after I purchased the D90. The only reason why the D90 was the 3rd camera in my bag behind the D300 was because I already had the grip for the D300 or I would have used the D90 for more than just when I wanted a "small"/no-grip camera. The D90 had a good enough build quality to use professionally with care. Other than this and the lack of PC sync, I thought that the D90 was superior to the D200 in almost every aspect.
