I agreed 5D2 individual AF with center-point only is very accurate.

Imagine having 61 of them covering the frame!

(Oh wait - you don't need to imagine it - you have it now)

But doesn't matter if center-point does its job as in 5D2 and 6D cases.  I'd agree more outer points certainly benefit in certain scenarios such as in close-up portrait with a fast-aperture lens in wide open if your model is not in center that I do benefit from my 5D3.  I actually used center-point only in more shots from my 5D3 on static subjects.
