So I finally found the induction cooktop that I want, it's by AEG and, unfortunately, not available in North America. Here it is in the UK: http://www.aeg.co.uk/Products/Cooking...
Basically, it has 4 zones, but no set burner size. As long as you cover the very center of the zone, you can use any size or shape pan. Freakin' awesome.
Some people have suggested I have it shipped to friends in England and then Fed-Exed here. Of course, then I have no warranty or service.
Does anyone else have any suggestions, or seen this type of "maxi-sense" available elsewhere?
PS - Broan in Germany also makes them, but again, not for export.
