Will there be a DX body that can equal the D700's high ISO performance?

I don't know whether to ask the D300 people or you all about this, but I figure you guys would know more about these matters...

I have a D80 and was not planning on upgrading for a long time... until I read about the fantastic high ISO performance of the new FX sensors (and improved high ISO performance of some new DX bodies). This makes me want to upgrade, but I'm a little hesitant about moving to full frame. I like getting a little closer to the action with the cropped sensor... so will there be a D400 or something that will perform on par with the D700 at high ISOs?

Most of the articles/reviews I read spoke as if this great performance was something that requires the bigger sensor, but they didn't actually say this, so I don't know if it is a matter of a DX sensor having an inherent disadvantage in this area...
