I desperately want a FX camera but the small AF area is keeping me away

Is there any technological reason behind why the AF Area is so small on recent FX Cameras?

Even on the top D810 the AF Area is rather small, compared to the D7x00 /D300 line:

Anyone who changed to FX did find this a Problem? I can image that you need to crop a lot more on a FX camera? I would prefair a FX camera wich has the same AF Coverage as the D7100...
