This is the way full frame 35mm has always been.

DX metering spot distribution is basically the FX pattern with the edges cropped. I don't know what constraints have made Nikon concentrate AF sensors into the area they use, but it has been that way for decades. The area gets more points and more cross-type points but it doesn't get larger. I'm pretty sure that's not because Nikon engineers think that AF points don't belong outside a central area and that it's related to physical constraints and/or poor performance of perimeter AF points.
