DSLRs aren't that good at being video cameras. Apart from auto focus issues (a situation I believe is improving -- not sure though?), the ergonomics tend to be all wrong.
But the most telling difference is the lack of optical low pass filter, which can cause horrendous aliasing problems.
OK, people like all the fancy trick bits which a huge sensor helps with --interchangeable lenses, good low light performance, shallow depth of field etc.... but the slow scan rolling shutter, and the alias issues with DSLRs mean that camcorders probably have still have a bit of life in them yet.....
