It does have an AA filter, apparently a very advanced 4 layer one, which probably allows for higher resolution red and blue channels (those usually get muted to avoid strong colour aliasing, in demosaicing). So, resulting in sharper results (yes, without big aliasing issues).

Every single feature you can switch ON or OFF has the potential to getting forgotten in the next shot. Which means, more risks to bring unusable pictures home - like me, trying to reduce the wind shake of a sturdy tripod and realizing some of the blurred images were misfocused, others by the IBIS-attempt to counterfeit tripod shake (which is impossible for 15").
Switching off IBIS, going lower with the tripod and behind a little wind shelter helped - but the other day IBIS still was shut OFF and some shots at 1/100 were blurred. Apparently I already rely on IBIS too much.
As I say, the more options you can switch, the more you need to think of 'em.
The issue will be: is the IBIS tech rugged enough yet to be put in a pro-body? There is a reason that it does not debut in the new EOS 1, even though Canon has functioning IBIS tech available in research and development. So, I would not be too surprised if it won't be in the D6.
If on/off switch for important functionality would be such an issue, most of high end lenses would not have them plenty; including one for IS, typically. ?
Good dual IS is a great asset in photography and even more in video. It took me to use it to realize it, though.
