All Canon was asked to do by the photogs was to improve the AF of MKII. I don't need a GPS or a WiFi for an image which I could not take due to bad AF. I just hope now that real life AF of 6D is much better than it looks on the specs sheet.
A lot of people make note that Canon is trying to sell a features stripped camera in a highly competitive market. I totally agree that this is a bad marketing. I guess Canon shot themselves in the foot with high price of 5D MKIII. Now they have to make sure entry level body specs come nowhere close to MKIII in order to protect MKIII sales. That could be an OK strategy if no other products existed on this market. Obviously, Canon did not notice a large group of elephants in the room. Too bad for a company with great optics.
