Ask yourself: what will getting a 5D do for you that the 60D cannot?

Thinner DOF and better ISO handling.

This image made me quite giddy. BUT, 600, don't think I'll be getting one...

I've been anxiously awaiting that lens, paired with an EF-S screen for the fiddy dee. If it turns out to be good, that's probably the only lens i intend to use on it until it's dead.

exactly as Sean said: Thinner DOF and better ISO handling.
I do 99% landscape work - and the full frame will also have reduced noise on my long exposures. once my 550D (same sensor as the 60D/7D/600D) hits ~5min exposures the noise seems to go up by a lot.

I have just enough for a 5DII atm - going to wait for the III to come out though - and get it if i have enough or i assume the 5DII prices will drop a fair bit at the same time......

Also - my 85mm becomes 85mm, not 136, as with my 28-75mm.....
looking to buy a 17-40L too around the same time - although i might buy that beforehand....hmm

Get some sort of VF magnifier. SO WORTH. My 5DII VF is now bigger than the FM2, which is many magnitudes larger than the 1DsIII.

My comment was more along the lines of "will it make you a better photographer?". Maybe I'm being too subtle.

I bough a DK-17M and lost it. I should look for it now.

if i was getting a hasselblad (digital) or a PhaseOne then that question is probably justified....lol

Why not get a medium format film system for landscapes? The cost is comparatively minimal, and with good scans, you can get some really amazing results. MF is ideal for landscapes, although large format is really where it's at -- but at a huge cost and with a steep learning curve.
