Nikon aren't making any more D90s (hence the price) so why should Sony? it would be obsolete before it was even introduced let alone after a predicted 1 year sales life ...
Actually I was quite happy to buy "old tech" with the D90 it holds up very well compared to newer more expensive models. I can see why they kept the D90 on for such a long time it was a huge hit for Nikon and owning one now I can vouch for why that is. Good overall with a decent price it's more than enough camera for most folks.
Sony could do a model like that no problem, obsolete heck even now folks still like the D90 if it's at the right price people will buy it. Expect the D7000 to drop down to the D90 position and price when the next model comes along. It's a good move IMO keeping older models on at a better price
