With 6 cells, that's a whopping 17,400 mAh rating's worth of juice in one battery grip, in contrast to 2600mAh for an EP-L6.

Ahem.  No it isn't, it's 2900mAh.  The cells are connected in series to get the required voltage. In this configuration the voltage multiplies, but the current doesn't.

I don't know why AAs get so much poorer life than the "proper" battery though. Even alkaline AAs have a capacity comparable to an LP-E6.
