I don't think it should be necessary now that all AF is done with cross type PD-AF (with CD-AF) which has negated the need for a small CD-AF area, since PD-AF will focus on the closest subject while CD-AF focussed on the contrasting detail that could be the background if that focus area was larger than the subject.
To quote Olympus Australia site
121-point All-cross-type On-chip Phase Detection AF
This E-M1 Mark II is equipped with an 11 x 11 121-point All-cross-type sensor. With an AF area that covers 75% vertically and 80% horizontally, subjects can be tracked across a wide range. All 121 points are cross-type focus points, making subject detection very accurate.
