There is no build of the v6 engine that runs on wearables.

What "fits" is more than size.

Fixes are backported to v6.7 as a courtesy to those who haven't yet 
migrated their work to the current engine, but I doubt we'll see 
significant feature enhancements for that legacy engine.

The present is v7, and the future is v8.  Like v5 and all earlier 
versions, we can expect v6 to be EOL'd long before v7.

To "fit" on wearables an engine needs fundamental changes, perhaps 
possible in the future but unlikely with v6.
