Seriously? If Canon was smart, they'd package their newest sensors on their cheapest models, not on their most expensive models. The 60D should have been a competitor for the D7000/D95, but from the data provided it soudns like it'll be outclassed by the D90 successor.
The trick is, if you put your newest sensors on your budget models, you'll force your pros and "enthusiasts" to spend money buying the budget models, because they need (want, in the latter case), the best high ISO / picture quality. Once you have the bugs worked out of the sensor, you re-release with better featuresets, like AF, or dual DIGICs, 14-bit processing, etc... In this case, because the pros need those features, and the enthusiasts have too much money, they will not only buy your budget models, they'll buy your pro models as well, paying a premium for technology "preview" costs.
Everything wrong with the 60D could have been negated simply by putting on a new sensor with 1-stop gain over the 7D. It would have kept Canon in the game, no matter how the D95/D7000 turns out; if it has worse adjacent features, well, cut the prices somewhat, the xxD line is no longer an enthusiast camera but a budget enthusiast camera.
