The original 6D has ISO 50. I don't care if it is a kludge or not; it works, and it allows me to shoot f/2 in broad daylight.

It has an ISO 50 setting, but it has a stop less RAW headroom than the ISO 100 setting, because they are just metering differences and converter differences of the same RAW gain and digitization. There might be some small differences in JPEGs, but JPEGs generally waste RAW headroom anyway, so a stop lost in the RAW highlights will affect a JPEG a lot less.

I am very happy to have 1/8000s speed, so I can use the f/0.95 Mitakon and other fast lenses better at bright daylight without grey filter.
Up to now I do not need the fast shutter times to freeze action, but it could be helpfull there too.

Having ISO 50 or ISO 64 and 1/8000 is a big help if you enjoy shooting primes. D810 has both, but my D750 only had native ISO 100 and 1/4000. YMMV

you need 8000 ss as much as you need f1.2. Both have their uses. Some people need it more than others.
