I dare bet if Canon solves the illuminating focus point on the 5dm3 then they will release the fix for the 7d.I've had my 7D for nearly 2 years now, and I never even knew it was a 'problem' until the 5D3 whingers started complaining about every button and feature they could think of...
Aww Dr Croubie...most 5D3 posters are not that bad! Mostly just a bit passionate about a design variation, ergonomic characteristic or GUI design decision that gets in the way of an uninterrupted workflow. Photographers who have lost shots because
of the black focus points are numerous and have a valid viewpoint. The fact that the issue is not affecting everyone does not make it a non-issue. Chuck Westfall from Canon USA openly acknowledges the black focus points as something that needs attention, and pointed to a potential firmware solution.
There may be a few disgruntled photographers who have sent back their 5D3 bodies, but most of us are just loving the camera and what it can do. Once you strip away the emotion and the dogma you'll find genuinely interested people who have suggestions on how to make a very good camera better.
Who wouldn't want the Rate button be able to do half a dozen more useful things, or have the choice of red or black focus points? If it's possible and practical in firmware, bring it on!
