My car has NEVER downshifted when going downhill with the transmission in D, only in S. Furthermore, I would be extremely upset if there was no way to opt out of it. I enjoy having the option to shift into S, but to have it happen in D would be silly. In fact, I don't think I've ever owned an "auto" that downshifted as aggressively as the Focus does in S, downhill or not. Again, this is a great thing as far as I'm concerned...as long as I can bypass this by keeping it in D when I feel like it.
