Well, I suppose most of the time the AF area signals where the subject is in the frame :). I also suppose one would want to prioritize exposure for the subject in a majority of cases so having this option (for spot metering) makes quite a lot of sense...

BTW - Canon's evaluative metering does prioritize exposure for the AF point used. It's not the exactly the same as spot metering with the used AF point, but it does go towards that to some degree - and seems to do a good job IMHO - though some people don't like it.
