I wonder if there's any chance the 6D could beat out the 5D3 at high ISO due to the 6D's larger pixels. Seems to be what's happening with the D600 over the D800.
My interpretation is that with the 36mp sensor, nikon simply said "sony, we like the aps-c 16mp sensor, make us a FF version"; While the 24mp sensor is sony designing a sensor the way they see fit, and with more flexibility to use newer processes.
The only real reason a modern higher MP camera will do worse is if the extra circuitry on the chip leads to a loss of light. I think we are getting to the point where that is a fairly minimal issue.
