Canon dSLRs - focussing

I recently found my old Canon EOS5 film camera, my very first SLR and I loved using it. But it made me wonder why Canon didn't carry over the focussing-by-eye function into their dSLRs. I always found this to be very useful and would certainly use it today rather than keep changing focal points by wheel or settings.

I vaguely remember ECF, was on an eos 3 amongst others, not really sure why canon didnt carry it over to digital though, does it still react as fast as it used to? And will it track throughout the frame or only on focus points?

I can't remember if it tracks and I don't have a film to try it, but seeing as I never use the tracking function anyway it was fab for what I wanted to do. I'd like it back.
