I've noticed that while scaling a layer in CS6, holding down the shift key doesn't scale exactly proportionally anymore. I have to manually link the height and width as otherwise it seems vary by a few hundredths of a percentage point each time I scale.

Sounds like you have the snap to pixel option enabled in preferences - and when you round the scaling to pixel boundaries, you can't always keep the exact proportion.

UI designers wanted the feature, and UI designers define the UI.

It would be awesome if this could be toggled with a keyboard short cut. It is very useful and a great addition, but sometimes I need to quickly edit a vector point and not have it align to pixels when I move it.
