I think there is a considerable overlap between the two.

There is none whatsoever!

Really?

They are both DSLR's.

They both accept EF-S lenses.

They both have very similar controls.

They both will take very similar photos in maybe 95% of photographic situations.

The 7D has some features that the 6D does not, and vice versa, but for most people buying a general purpose camera, they mostly do the same job.

For those that need both there are alternatives available - i.e. 5DIII. But the target groups are as far seperated as they could be from the onset, so the availability of both cameras will *not* create any further division in markets.

You don't know what the 'target groups' are - Canon knows that. I doubt that many who buy a 7D use it exclusively for action photography, nor do those that buy a 6D use it exclusively for studio and landscape work. In the overlap are the majority of everyday situations that both cameras handle pretty well. Not every buyer is like you.

I for one would never consider ever buying a full frame DSLR if there is a fast alternative and even if there weren't I wouldn't even remotely consider the 6D.

Then you would not be a buyer, you would probably have to settle for a 70D, or just not upgrade your camera. The point for Canon is overall sales (or more importantly, overall profits), not what one individual will or won't do. Unless there are enough that think like you, and wouldn't buy another Canon camera, Canon would never recover the investment for a brand new camera.
