New Version of 5D with more pixels - Canon CEO's response?

Precisely

The tight little cluster around the centre seems odd to me - like they took the AF points out of an APS-C design.

The physical size of the 5D AF sensor array is exactly the same size as the APS-C sensor array. Furthermore, the physical size of the 1Ds sensor array is exactly the same size as the 1-D sensor array. In all cases, it appears a technical issue that Canon can't place AF sensors any farther than about 15mm from the center axis.

It's not just to annoy users.
