yeah, it's a shame, because i doubt it's a real big thing to add some more options.
Can't remember the last game where i saw it, but different sizes of crosshairs was once possible to select, maybe it was Unreal 1, or ST: Elite Force, so a rather long time ago. ok, by choosing a dot, they actually want it to almost disappear, like with the whole hud in Dead Space... but yeah if someone needs it to be different it shouldn't be fixed in this way.
Gothic 4 or Arcania: A Gothic tale or whatever it will be called at release will have an american, a more colorful option and a european, more dark style variant. Just by adjusting the brightness and lightning as i understand.
Developers might not want their game to look ugly because someone changed it without any necessity and then doesn't like the looks and complains it's a bad game or whatever (and forgets to select load defaults...), but Uncharted or Far Cry offered some alternative rendering styles, just for fun. So i don't think adding some adjustable settings for gamers with eye issues should be hard, impossible work.
