"have to cruise around 70 mph on 6th gear in order to keep the rpms were they need to be, below that we must keep it on 5th gear"
This is pretty close to what I see...I stay in manual tap shift mode all the time, I only select 6th when I'm in the flats/down slopes and am running over 65(which is rare, I'm in 5th way more than 6th).
This should put your gear ratio concerns to bed...stay under 70mph and you'll be in the same boat as we are for overdrive/total drive ratio...the Allison .71 5th gear and the 47re .69 4th are damn near a match..

I like the Oldsmobile analogy Lenny the trick is to get those suggestions in early ahead of time beat the lag.
