Canon product numbering has been to use 1-digit numbers for the high end, 2-digit numbers for the middle, and 3-digit numbers for the consumer grade.

Within levels, higher numbers indicate more advanced products.

The 6D seems to represent a decline from the 5Dmk3, so why isn't it called the 4D?

"Within levels, higher numbers indicate more advanced products."

No, LOWER numbers indicate more advanced products. Hence the naming of 6D is correct.
