Well I'd love to see a comparison between the 7D and 6D in AI servo mode and see how the new AF stacks up for fast action. If 6D can roundly beat 5D II and hold it's own or even better 7D it might quell a lot of angst over the 11 pt AF and get a lot more interest. Even if you will only dabble in action work, it's nice to know it won't let you down and it also means it will be a good camera even for event photographers, especially in low light.

Pixel -- I think you might be still placing too high of expectations on the 6D with regard to AF. I seriously doubt it will equal, let alone surpass, the 7D. My hope that it slightly surpass the 5D2, especially with the possibly improved center cross and outer AF points. I think of it along the lines of the original 5D, and I would never have considered that body suitable for "action" shooting. Yes, it can grab an occasional shot of action, but not like the 1D3 that was out around that same time. Different horses.
On the other point, I speculate that because the 6D sensor is a tiny bit smaller, that may account for the odd seeming MP numbers. If it is based on the new 5D3 sensor, it could be the reason for its smaller number of pixels around the border, 22 > 20. Just a thought.
