Any use for six-level cue bid?

I usually play six of a suit after Blackwood (RKCB) is asking for third round control in the suit bid. That does not make sense when the suit is the opponent's preempt.

Does anyone have a use for such a bid? Does a choice of slams make sense?

I was looking at a hand tonight that had KQx and there is an obvious danger of an adverse diamond ruff if partner had diamond length. So after agreeing spades and Blackwood I now wanted to offer a choice of denominations. If I can't offer the choice now then the only alternative I could see was to cue 5 rather than the 4NT ask and see if partner cues diamonds but obviously then I lose Blackwood and could end in six missing two key cards or the queen of trumps.
