I disagree. I think the engineers picked a 6th gear ratio either for cruising the German Autobahns at speeds significantly higher than 70 or for maximum speed.

I find one of the joys of driving a manual transmission is to find the right gear for each situation. I have seen some people who run through the gears as fast as possible to get to the top gear and leave it there. I would recommend those people get an automatic transmission.
