Despite what the rumor seems to indicate, I couldn't agree with you more. A D4x, historically, should be the next body. Then, a year from now, an "s" variant. But Nikon seems to have taken a more "shotgun" approach lately and it makes future planning for great nearly impossible. Maybe Nikon is just running short on D4 bodies and that's why they're not taking orders (as the link above postulates)
I do hope the kwhaley29's comment above about consolidating the line isn't accurate. I personally think Nikon has a good setup with a fast camera and a pro body high res camera. An "x" variant at 24 MP at current D4 speeds would be great, but anyone who was waiting for a D4x at 36+MP would not bite. Still, I wouldn't be surprised at this point.
If I had a wish list, it would be a high res D4x (54MP) and a 24MP D4s. That would settle me on equipment for quite awhile.
