I mean to say there is a strong possibility that LR6 would be CC only.

There is no evidence that Adobe will definitely license LR6 as CC only, but there is no indication that they won't.  There is also the possibility that they abandon LR altogether and that LR5 is the last version they ever make.

If they are to be believed that LR is the enthusiast program then some confirmation that they intend to keep LR as a stand-alone version for the foreseeable future would buoy my confidence.  I search and could not find such a confirmation, which in my mind suggests that either

a) they don't understand their customer's concerns over the CC license

b) they haven't made up their mind yet and LR6 could be CC only
