Canon FF cameras incompatibility with APS lenses.

I remember that Canon stated that APS lenses could not be used on the E5D2 and E5D3 cameras. My understanding was that the mirror would hit the back of APS lenses. But I am not sure of that.
My question is 2 part

1. what is the real reason (just because light fall off would be seen with APS lenses on a FF sensor or was there indeed a mechanical problem)?
2. Can APS lenses be used on the new 6D?
Thanks

Canon EOS 6D Olympus E-5
