i think its just a natural evolution of where cisco is trending. 
yes -- some of the ia features resemble the n2k functionality -- but there are additional enhancements that make ia more of a campus tool -- rather than the d/c. 

i think you'll being to see futher enhancements to the platforms (c6k, nexus) that will start to draw clear lines between the positioning or 'general use case'. catalyst will continue to be the campus platform, while nexus will be for the d/c. there may be similar products from each line (ia vs. fex; c4k-x vs. n5k, etc). this will continue to grow as new nexus linecards/platforms/architectures are put out in the wild.
