Face detection via firmware upgrade?

Question for the engineers and electronic folks in the forum. Is it possible to add face detection AF via firmware upgrade (i.e. for the XPro1, XE1)?

I wonder why Fuji does not have detection on the XPro1 and XE1. Could it be because of the sensor? Yes, I know we can work around it by moving the AF point, or focus and recompose. But face detection is very helpful particularly when handing the camera to someone else, or working portraits quickly with very shallow DOF.

Fuji, if you are reading, how about adding face detection?

Thanks!
