Nikon policy with cross sensor

When you use Nikon lenses either slower than F4 or with converters as x1,4 things are getting worse. The numbers of active cross sensors are dramatically reduced. I notice this expecially with my 500/5.6 pf with TE1,4 converter. The autofocus gets much worse and slower. In the manual of D500 and D850 you notice that there is only 1 cross sensor with this combo. I wonder if this is a strategy of Nikon in order to back up the sales of the big teles or is there really no good technical solution to enhance numbers of cross sensor with higher f-numbers.
