Personally I think this is no issue whatsoever.

For focus-tracking fast moving subjects, the tight cluster in the center is actually ideal. Indeed, on my D300, where the AF system covers nearly the entire frame, I limit it to 9- or 21-point anyway for shooting action.

For rule-of-thirds composing: If you're handheld it's no big deal at all to focus-and-recompose. If on a tripod, bigger deal, but you should use LiveView in this situation anyway, either for manual focus or contrast-detect AF which allows you to select anywhere in the frame for focus.
