1. CW problems have been fixed! the 6700 is a delight to use in CW!
2. Break-in appears to work too!
3. The CW filters appear to be sharper and have steeper skirts than with the F5K.

I agree and I was one of those people who would not let go of the previous CW defect until it was resolved.

The key to sharp filter "ringing" seems to be keeping the AGC-T control at the lowest level possible. I have no basis to state that the 6700 filters are improved over the 5000, but they seem to be at least as good now.

The only "complaint" that I have is the cumbersome series of mouse clicks that it takes to change modes, add panadapters/slice receivers with different settings, etc. The memories in the 5000, combined with persistence made this a snap with that radio! I cannot wait for this capability in the 6700.
