Is Nikon different from Canon in that regard, or is adding features like highlight weighted metering or group area AF different from what Magic Lantern does for Canon? I realize that ML does not replace or modify Canon code, it runs alongside it.

The reverse engineering done for CKDK / Magic Lantern is the exception that proves the rule.  Just because some people figured out a way to do it for one set of Canon compact cameras, and were kind enough to release the work for free, doesn't mean that you can reasonably expect someone to do the equivalent for other cameras.
