Then you would have to relocate the PD AF sensor.  Now you will have to split the light into three directions, taking even more light from the sensor.

Well, in another thread I was fantasizing about a sensor which used the space between the PDAF sensors. Some kind of a counterpart to on-sensor PDAF: An on-PDAF image sensor...

This would create an ugly image with lots of holes, but it might still be a better option for action photography.
