There are several ways this could be fixed, and the basic capability to illuminate the AF points does exist. I do hope they'll patch it in firmware.

On the 5D2, in AF Servo the selected AF points flash as you half-press the shutter.

Agreed. I don't understand why some people say that the hardware prevents this issue from being fixed. The points light up when you select a point, they light up after focus is achieved, I see no reason they can't flash when the AF is initiated. Seems like a simple fix to me...

What worries me is that the 1Dx, with the same issue, just had a firmware update released, without any resolution of the AF lights.
