I noticed that multisegment metering relies heavily on the active focus point. Is there a way to allow metering to incorporate the entire frame instead?

Don't have a 6D, but I'm, thinking you'll be able to switch to Centre-Weighted Average metering. Check the manual.

Right, so probably not an option with multisegment metering?

Not on the 5D3 or 7D. Not sure about the 6D, but I doubt it. The assumption is that you would want to expose 'correctly' for the part of the scene you focus upon. That's usually the case.
