Whats the best configuration for a 36 inch 6 burner cooktop?

I am currently considering the Viking VGSU163 36 inch 6 burner cooktop. I like the look of the viking professional drop in cooktop but I am worried that I won't really be able to fit 3 large size pots (including a large saute pan) on all at the same time. I worry that the simmer won't be as good as a brand with duel stacked burners and I worry that with only one large btu at 14,000 it might not have enough power. I think Thermador makes a 45 inch 6 burner and all the other brands only have 5 burner 36 inch cooktops. I love to cook and want the ability to do a lot of cooking at once. Does anyone have the the Viking 6 burner and does it meet your needs. Should I look at a 48 inch range top for maximum btu's and space? Thanks!
