Would this hybrid focusing system interest any of you?

Just a thought but what if normal through the lens viewing were combined with electronic view of a small part of the image, greatly enlarged, as a way to check fine focus? Perhaps this enlarged area would tie in with whatever focus point were chosen. It might be 1/4 the size of the viewfinder image and be either to the right or left of it. Of course it would have to be easy to turn it off as having it constantly on could be a big distraction. Maybe a dedicated button the camera would make it a breeze to activate or deactivate.

Anyway, this is pure fantasy. Have no idea if anyone intends to create such a system. But does it seem appealing and useful or stupid and useless?
