F1.4 with the same optical performance will be huge, and if you are shooting at 5.6 anyway, it makes no sense... F1.8 is a great compromise on FF.
If you "are shooting at f5.6 anyway", you should question the need for FF in the first place. MFT or APS-C will offer what you need even without any f1.8 primes.
If, however, you would like the possibility to shoot for instance 85mm f1.4 once in a while, you can only achieve that... with a f1.4 lens. Sure, 85mm f1.8 will be enough for many, but not for all. Same goes for 50/55mm f1.8 vs f1.4/f1.2.
In short: f1.8 "if you are shooting at 5.6 anyway, it makes no sense..." either.
