the M seems fine with it

Fyi: the M port is way more recent, un-tested and lacks some features that the full 5d3 version has... I know the "I don't want to brick my camera" feeling from when I first installed a ML alpha on my shiny new 60d 3 years ago, but those where the days when ML was way more unstable and didn't have the broad user base that tests it.

i was kinda hopeing the m had the digital video zoom enabled like on the 600D but it appears not :(  :'(

No "core" ML dev has a M, so it's a second class citizen port like 6d and unlike 5d3. For the M, you can try the unofficial "Tragic Lantern" fork which has more bleeding edge features available but is unsupported by the ML forum: https://bitbucket.org/OtherOnePercent/tragic-lantern-6d/downloads
