Upload & Sell: On
If you can afford it, keep the 1D4 and the 5D3, and only part with the 7D. The extra reach of the 1D4 is useful in some situations, including wildlife which you mentioned. And the 5D3 is an ideal backup to the 1DX, having similar menu structures and similar features except for the frame rate. In the future, if you see a new camera that meets your backup needs, you might consider getting that and selling the 5D3.
If you do not think you need the reach, you could consider parting with the 1D4, but there may never be another pro grade high frame rate crop camera. I have a 1DX, but still also use my 1D4, and do not plan to part with it. My "other" camera besides those two is my 5D2, which is not just a backup, but is a primary camera when I do not want to haul along the much larger 1DX. I also shoot in situations where it is important to have two bodies along, each with different lenses mounted, and each in use as I change between them. That is another place where I want good capabilities in a second body, and it is not just a backup.
