The X-S1 has selectable area focusing, and if you simply leave the box in the center, it seems to me it would act pretty much like the HS50's additional "center" focus option. I don't see much difference.

The HS50 also has selectable area focusing that you can simply leave in the center. If there is no difference, why would Fuji add the additional option of "center" focus to the HS50 if it already had something that, according to you, did the same thing?

I don't know if it does the EXACT same thing.  I'm just saying, like many do, I'm a "focus and recompose" guy and I just leave the "area" focus "centered".  Can't say for sure how much of an area is used for focus detect in either case, and maybe the HS50's "center" setting is a smaller area, than simply using a center square in "area" mode.
