Adorama's website is saying that "a firmware update for EOS 5D Mark III is scheduled to be available in April 2013." What are the rumors for the forthcoming update?

No need for rumors.  This was covered in an actual announcement from Canon.  The big points are uncompressed HDMI out and f/8 AF capability.  Here's Canon's press release.

maybe they will include other goodies too, like 6fps with less than 50% battery and support for the AF assist beam when using flash in low light.

I ordered the 2xIII the day they announced the 1D X firmware update.  ;)

6fps with less than 50% battery

Really? There's a restriction when the battery is < 50%?
