Well... Continental owns part of Frontier or they are in cahoots with eachother. Frontier employees can fly on Continental for free just like they can on a Frontier plane. Continental added 2 737-800s and 1 757 to DEN schedule.

It could work, since Frontier's fleet is mostly 737s. It would have to happen before those Airbuses arrive though.
BTW, I haven't heard of this yet, but I will ask around tonight, since I am operating the red-eye to CDG (CO56) and will catch a bunch of the guys going out to Europe on the second round of departures. I'll let you know what I hear.

Good reasoning regarding the business focus
as for the fleets, I would think that the 717's and Airbuses will complement each other very nicely:
the 717's for the short routes and the A318/19's for the transcons.
as for the -9's, they are already on their way out, so they are not realy a long term problem.
