There was a press release around 2005 ish about the a760 and it said something like "we were able to use the same gear train as the 5 speed and make our new 6 speed with the same transmission." As though it was some new discovery. It was a 6 speed from day 1. Just silly marketing.

This is the way. With 4.56 diffs (already produced btw - the 2010 4cyl had 4.56 ratio), and the 6 speed overdrive the final drive net ratio is effectively identical to the current 5th gear and 3.73. and you'd get all the benefits of the nice low 1st gear both in normal traffic and off road. It would be a very nice solution if it were reasonably doable. But I don't think it is.

From what I have read, Tacomas have that problem with their 6 speed.
