However, the red rectangle that represents the actual focal point on the viewfinder should turn green when focus lock has been achieved.

I've asked for the same feature - a "heads up" manual focus indication.

But assuming they can't change the color due to hardware, I'd like them to use the left and right brackets as if they were arrows.  When out of focus, show just one bracket (say - the left side).  If I turn the focus ring to the right, both brackets light up when I hit focus.  If I go too far to the right, the left bracket turns off.
