GoPro seems like an interesting route, does anyone know if it has exposure compensation, and if it shoots raw stills?

Yes but it sounds like he is comparing the viewfinder square with what is displayed on the LCD screen on the back. They are two different things not linked together...at least not on the 5D3.
The red AF point markers on the rear LCD are not tied to the point in the viewfinder...though they attempt to show you which AF point was activated during the shot, they are not calibrated to the PD sensor.
So if I mount the body on a tripod, live view and viewfinder focus on different spots even when both for example use the middle AF point? Is that what you are saying, or is one of them just indicating a false AF point position? The middle points are not on the same targets.
The sensor remains in the same spot, framing is therefore the same. I doubt that these two modes have separate AF systems with different AF point locations.
So in theory, mirror locked up, live view shooting could be a kind of silent mode?
Yes, Live View is quieter than regular shooting. It also uses an electronic first curtain shutter and that eliminates another source of vibration - that makes Live View ideal for tripod-mounted shooting of static subjects.
