Doesn't really mean much, there will be a D200 but no trademark is
registered yet. Registering just reserves a trademark.

Yes, but Nikon doesn't usuallly reserve a trademark until a few months
before the equipment is ready for production. For instance, they reserved
D70 in November of 2003. The D70 began shipping in February of 2004. If no
D200 trademark has been reserved, the camera may not be ready for production
yet (and may not be called D200 - there is nothing magical about model
numbers).
