FC devices may need 3.3 volts (at least in the future) but are not required to 
need 3.3 volts. The definitve requirements are in SFF 8045 and 8047.

The 8045 specification makes 3.3 volts optional for the host side and 5 volts 
required for the host side. 8047 makes both 3.3 volts and 5 volts required for 
the host to provide. The FC device is free to choose.
