It's a basic and obvious assumption that the world doesn't revolve around two people. You don't have to throw in a bunch of different focuses to show that. The point of telling a story is to focus on some character and little side stories that develop solely on those characters show that there are things going on in the world, but those things serve the writers point in developing a certain character. Would you like it if suddenly in the story they enter into a filler arc to focus on some new anime specific character while Kirito has to deal with Asuna and Sugu? Why don't we throw in a nuclear attack on Japan that Kirito has to deal with too? That'll really show that the world is out there.
