The histogram doesn't move in manual, but the exposure stops to the left of the viewfinder do change according to settings. Using both you can figure out how to compensate, but yes, it would be nice for the histogram to move also as clearly the camera is aware of under/overexposure. I suspect it may have been a design choice on that basis that reflected how the engineers thought people would use the two measures rather than how people actually use them. Maybe they'll address it in a firmware update, but for the time being I think it's still possible to meter reasonably well by comparing the two.
