I have several nikon dslrs. D7000 is the only one of them which behaves this
way.

If I want to 'learn' that the focus area is bigger than the area shown
in the view finder, which section of the manual should I consult?
I'm not being a smart-ass, but if it's really supposed to work this
way, Nikon should be describing it in the manual. Otherwise, I'm
going to use the same techniques that I've used successfully with
other Nikon bodies.

Personally, I like tools to be simple and reliable. There will always
be a situation where there just isn't time to think. What ever is happening
is happening in the moment. If putting the focus point on a subject,
and releasing the shutter isn't enough to get an in focus image, than
in a high-stress, in the moment situation, the images may be lost.

This is a bummer.

I'm sure you won't agree with me but if you want simple, why not buy a simpler camera? The D5100 fits that description.

A camera is a tool that needs to be learned. A 1962 Corvette doesn't run, ride or drive like a 2012 model. A D7000 is no different. If it's more advanced or has features that you don't want or use, then a different camera is the answer. However, if you take the time to learn to use the D7000 as it's designed to be used, you'll get spectacular images as a result.

I don't mean to insult you so please don't take it that way.
