I could care less about the amount of focus points. As long as the ones that are there actually work, and work well!
Imagine you are shooting a wedding, you find the face in a small crowd you want your focus plane on, set a focus point over it and look at it with your eye... Boom! Instant perfect focus, without fiddling with your dial.
Although this sounds more like something for an "EOS 3D." Current technology would allow for a much more robust eye tracking system, and 3D eye control would really justify the name.
