request for Canon: kindly redistribute your AF points

I am excited with the new offerings of Canon, but one thing disappoints me.( I hope Canon people will read this.) I'd like to see a redistribution of the focus points. They are all bunched up around the center area. In the 5d II it seems that they have been bunched up further in the center compared to previous models. I believe not everyone needs or likes focusing in the center.

For example, if i take full body fashion shots, i would really like to be able to focus directly on the face when I compose the shots. Unfortunately, this isn't possible with the way Canon distributes the focus points.

The 1D and 1Ds series may have dozens of AF points but again they are all bunched up around the center.
I hope they can consider this for their future models.
