If you're ultimately worried about things like either the 7d or 5d2 being upgraded in the near future (due to your pyschology as you stated), then do either of these two things:
Keep what you have and "upgrade" your skills more, the equipment you currently have probably isn't holding you back, then save and wait for something new in the prosumer range to come out.
Or, upgrade to a 40D, yes, going from a T2i to 40D is something I'd consider an upgrade. Sure it lacks video and the 18mp, but in reality the 40 is quite the camera. It has a nice fps rate, good performance all around, is built like the big body cameras that you're looking at, has some weather sealing, etc...
For what it's worth, I shoot with a 5D2 (used to have a T1i), and I'm looking at a 40D for a second/backup body, and mainly to leave a 70-200 on it because of the crop factor while using the 5D mainly for wider stuff...
Again, these are just my opinions, but you can get a 40D lightly used for like 400 bucks.. and today on my local craigslist I saw some people selling 40Ds with accessories like grips, etc.. for not much more.
