A luxury buyer considering a Subaru is going to want both the buttery smooth H6 drivetrain and the HID headlights.

Nothing wrong with lots of luxury options on a car with a pedestrian brand. Have you seen the spec sheet of a Focus Titanium?
Well, the only cars I consider "competition" with the Outback are the Crosstour, the Venza, and the Edge. Most everything else is more expensive. I agree that there are plenty of people willing to pay, but how many is plenty? I think there are a lot of things Subaru should make as an option or accessory. I would sure love for someone at SOA(or anyone on here who understands it) to explain to me why some things couldn't be custom ordered from the factory, like interior/exterior color combinations. If someone was willing to wait, and even pay, why not allow it?
