With firmware 2.0.3 you can dedicate either AI Servo or One-Shot AF to the AF-On button and the other to the AE (*) Lock button, leaving the shutter button to start metering and shutter release only.  This gives you full control of the AF function you want and still keep the AF and Shutter release separate while looking through the viewfinder.   In the case of AI Servo, this allows for uninterupted tracking of the subject by keeping the button pressed and capturing the shot(s) with the shutter button as the AF continues to track the subject.
