Different teams are working on the R400 than worked on the R300, and same with NV40 vs. NV30. These teams will be basing improvements on lessons learned instead of the actual architectures.
Anyway, note that nVidia still has quite a bit more money to throw around. It would be more than a little amazing if nVidia fell short a second time.
