Anyone else upset the new 5DIII looks like it will not fix the AF point Illumination issue?

Yes, it seems like it would be possible to fix it within manual mode, which would probably help people like you who are shooting under stage lights where manual would probably be the preferred shooting mode and the problem of not seeing the focus points against a black background is at its worst.

Just so.

I can't imagine why Canon doesn't offer, for Manual mode only, the option of having the selected AF point illuminated constantly (as is the case with the 1D mark IV.) While the blinking AF point fix is usable, a constantly-illuminated AF point would be better.
