Don't try to force things to fit that already work perfectly the way they're intended.
But they don't always. Off the top of my head I can think of several Aguado and Villa Lobos pieces in which a smaller interval between the 5th and 6th strings would DEFINITELY solve some technical problems, and that's without even having to try them out. Particularly the Aguado; some of those stretches in the bass are just silly and would be completely solved with an extra string or two. It may not work at all for some things, but it might make some other things much easier.

Yes, it's logical that trying even to finger traditional chord shapes isn't going to work: the top 5 strings are ok but 6 string chords like G or E are going to have to be broken awkwardly presumably?
For playing classical music I have to say I'm not too concerned about whether cowboy chords are still gonna work or not...
