Sounds to me like a mode in which the camera determines the subject near and far distance and sets aperture to ensure all subjects are in focus.
take for example a shot of a group of people. face detection could be used to determine the distance to the subject closest to the camera and the suject farthest from the camera, then select the aperture that mathmatically satisfies the DOF with that lens.
Sounds like a cool feature for consumer level cameras or even for shooting video if it was dynamic enough to adapt to the changing environment in real time.
My original EOS650 had that.
My old 500D still has it
