There's a hole in my line-up!

My current lens inventory is (all Nikkor):
10.5mm f/2.8
28-70 f/2.8
70-200 f/2.8
85 f/1.4
200-400 f/4
I do mostly wildlife and travel photography and my existing lenses seem to fulfill my needs, but I can't shake the feeling that a 17-35 f/2.8 (or wide prime) is missing from the list. However, I'm not sure that I've ever really missed not having one.
That makes me question whether I have a "vision block" in the wide-angle range and just don't see the possibilities that I could be getting. After all, with my D2X, I'm really jumping from 10.5mm to a 42mm equivalent with the 28-70.
Assuming that I can "zoom with my feet" in many circumstances, what am I otherwise missing from a creative standpoint by not having a wide solution? Of course, examples with any explanations are especially appreciated...
Thanks.
