What is the current fixation among camera manufactures to add video to digital SLRs? Do they feel that consumers are demanding such features?

I currently have a D200, and would like to upgrade to a capable, digital SLR that gives me better low-light performance. If I had to upgrade today, I would love to have a D7000 without the video. I just don't need the video and don't like paying for a feature that in my opinion is just simply feature bloat.

What would the D7000 cost without video capability? <$1000? I'd buy in a heartbeat, but convincing my wife to let me spend more than a grand on a camera is difficult. Convincing her to let me buy a camera that also has video, when we already have a very high quality video camera is even harder.

Will I ever see the return of a DX digital SLR without video?
