Sigh, Again same as previous 5D/5DII it does not allow one to shot rule of thirds. Why they don't move the 2,4,8,10 o'clock points farther out when they added the two new points?

Because since 2007 Canon has been relying on brand loyalty and existing lens investment to sell cameras, rather than innovation or competitive pricing. Their sensor technology is now 7 years old as well. They also don't offer a body with a pro build or spot metering linked to the AF point unless you pay for a 1 series body. The competition offers those things in $1100 and $350 bodies respectively.

I also agree with you that the AF points would be better a bit more spread out with how few there are.

I use both brands, but I don't know what Canon was thinking with the 6D, at least at the price point (It should be $1499 or so).
