Question Why didn't we get a new slayer in S6 after Buffy's death in S5?

Probably this has been already discussed before, but why there wasn’t a new slayer in S6 following Buffy’s death in The Gift? What am I missing?

Two bullet points:

1) Kendra was activated the first time around but she met her fate via Drusilla

2) Faith was activated from #1 but as of this time she was serving her prison sentence for the murder of Wilkins' aid (and wouldn't be sprung from there til the time of the Beast and Angelus being unleashed). Plus given memories of what she did was probably still fresh on Xander, Willow, and Giles' minds, the very last thing they wanted was rogue slayer coming back to help.

Re: Faith and prison, if the dialogue about Spike from Wes to Gunn in Just Rewards was to go by, chances are Buffy probably gave the simples to Giles about her popping into LA to hunt her down and thought nothing of it again

Buffy's 2nd death doesn't trigger a new slayer, but after being resurrected in season 6, if she died again would she then trigger a new slayer. Does the slayer line both reside in Faith and Buffy post season 6? Wasn't that the whole cause for the First Evil or something. Seems like all you have to do to get more slayers is just kill one and bring them back. It's curious that Buffy retained her Slayer powers after being resurrected. Was there something in Willow's spell that brought back the Slayer line?
