I won't even bother diving in to the EOL nature, but the bigger problem is that, as of today, Java6 for OS X appears nearly impossible to download:
Shows up blank for me. I don't think its very high on priorities for Apple to fix. And there is no where or other way to acquire this installer.
Also, thanks to code signing, I can't edit Into.plist to change the Java version. Java7 seemed to work well enough on the EAP.
Honestly the only reason to install Java6 anymore is IntelliJ. My development is firmly in the 7 and 8 camp now. (thankfully!)
