I would hazard a guess that environmental sealing becomes a more tricky issue with an articulated LCD.

So you think the engineers who designed all those recent semi-pro mirrorless cameras with tilt screen are wrong? I think many of those cameras have better weather sealing and more solid construction than 6D, despite the tilt screen. And we aren't talking about a pro camera that needs to keep working in the worst conditions anyway, the 6D is really an entry level FF camera.

No I don't know, nor do I know how well weather-sealed mirrorless cameras of other manufacturers are as you pretty much never see meaningful testing of weather/environmental sealing (or often see detailed information of what weather/environmental sealing actually constitutes for that matter). I'm merely advancing a theory as to why it might be omitted.
