A quick google shows it is available on some canon and Nixon slurs also. I think it is more of a gimmick because it wants you to look directly at the point of focus, and that takes away from framing the whole shot and setting the focus point where you want / need it
That’s why no one wants it. We want today’s Eye-AF.

Pentax has had face recognition in Live View for quite some time. Several users have noticed that it tends to preferentially focus on the eyes.

Is there really a problem?
For me it works pretty well with doing business headshots, etc.

Seems like it would be the logical thing to focus on. Certainly don't want it grabbing the end of the nose or the ears.
