That is a Stupid Design

it would be nice to be able to change focus point even when the camera isn't metering tho, you have to half press to start metering, then change af point.

I totally agree with your statement, as often one would need to activate the meter again by an additional button (like the shutter button) press before the direct AF selection could work. The only work around I've found is to extend the meter timeout value, which does not seem to harm the battery life AFAIK.
