Default A700 / a300 (auto) Focus points

On my a300, and now the a700, the cameras, when in AF, never choose multiple AF points when using the OVF.
This is not the case when using Live View on the a300 (Of course the a700 does not have live view). In LV, the a300 will choose multiple focus points when in AF - you can see the green squares (I have seen up to 4 at once) light up. Like I said above, when in OVF, only one focus point will be selected always on both cameras.
I played today w/ the a330 ans a230, and also a Canon Xs and 7D, and a Nikon D90. All of them, including the Sonys, chose multiple focus point when in AF mode through the OVF.
Any "explanation"? Mostly out of curiosity.
