If the EOS 6D Mark II went mirrorless than that would be pointless without a mount change and new lens lineup.
Putting an EF mount on a mirrorless camera adds a ridiculous amount of bulk which defeats the whole point of a mirrorless setup but to call it a 6D Mark II would make no sense to change mounts going from the Mk I -> Mk II.
The sony E mount makes sense because it has a 18mm flange distance vs 44mm for the EF mount.
The new FF lensmount could simply comprise shortening the distance from sensor plane to lens flange and introducing an adapter to take up the space, so that old lenses could still be used. As for the need for a new lens lineup, I somewhat agree with you, but, since the old lenses would still be usable, the new lineup can be introduced over several years. Hopefully the new lenses would be smaller than the old.
As for a name, how about "M6D"?
