It's kinda confusing - first the manual says 3 shots, but later tells you how to adjust that up to 7 shots AEB. Multiple exposures are a different animal; that is where several [I believe up to 9] shots of a subject in motion are captured in a single frame. Very beautiful effect, and I'm dying to try it

Not looking to argue about this because I have not used or held the camera yet, but I did ask about the "multiple shots in one frame" feature.  As someone on the list who seemed knowledgeable explained it, the camera combines multiple shots into one frame, but the original shots still exist as separate photographs should you want one of them rather the composite.  The in-camera HDR also apparently works the same way.  I will know for sure shortly, but that is how these features were explained.

As an aside, I had never put multiple shots of a sequence together before.  I decided to try using Photoshop.  If you shoot off a tripod, it is pretty easy.

Does anyone know if you have more flexibility setting the points the AEB are taken at? For example, with 7D you can do -1, 0, +1, or -2, 0 +2.
Will the 5D let you do -2, -1, 0, +1.33 or other combinations?

I hope so.  The 5D II and 5D I let you do that.  :)  The limitation on the 5D II was you could only shoot 3 shots, and those shots could vary only by 2 stops.  So -3,0+3 was not possible.  You could however shoot -1+1,+3, which when added to -2,0+2, gave you a nice 6 photo bracket.

It sounds like the 5DIII now allows 3,5, or 7 shots in AEB, and the 2 stop limitation is also gone.
