With 3.11.26, 5D2 files look the same as always, and 5D3 files look about the same as 5D2 files until you get into the higher ISOs. I think there we are just seeing the advantages of the new sensor.

I think we are seeing typical Canon marketing. Keep the better conversion for the new model. I remember in the old days - the 350D conversion was terrible both with the ZB and with the DPP; Adobe kept improving it while Canon left it where it was - in the stone age.

Well, the 5D3 sensor does use new architecture and gapless microlenses. It is supposed to be less noisy, and as far as I can tell the proof is in the pudding.

It is not in Canon's best interests to improve raw conversion for discontinued cameras. It is in Adobe's. Meh. This is the beauty of capitalism. It is only natural.
