I don't find this so much a problem.  I believe there is a similar CW 
subband on 2 m. as well.  That represents only 1/40 of the 6m band.  It 
would be the equivalent of a 12.5 kHz kHz CW band on 80m.

The real problem is with the outdated subband restrictions we have on HF.  
For example, 50% of the 3.5-4.0 mHz band is restricted to accomodate 
communications that could easily fit into less than 20% of the band, even 
during CW contests.
