I scraped around with a knife to get the paint of. Works fine know.

Really ticks me that Sony painted an electrical contact to promote their inhouse accessories.

I can't agree with your conclusion.  I have many items, none of them Sony brand, which do use the Sony A6000's unpainted hot-shoe surface for a ground connection.  Unfortunately I have others that don't. 

I don't know if the ISO 518:6006 standard specifies the location of the ground contact surface or not.  They want money to read the full text of the standard.
