Is the 5DIII perfect?

Points to improve:
1) Selected AF points not so good visible (Firmware update?)
2) Auto ISO 1/250 min (should be 1/2000) (Firmware update?)
3) Auto ISO 1/focal length (should have a selectable factor) (Firmware update?)

You for forgot the most important deficiency/flaw, noise and banding in shadow area.
No, DPP does not fix it as you've been trying to preach in the past.

I can honestly say that I'm not struggling at all with "banding in shadow areas" like you say. And I've pushed some images about pretty hard - just don't see any banding of any significance at all.

If you are having problems, try turning off HTP and ALO. I think these settings, coupled with some converters and perhaps some poor exposure practices, may be the main reason why some seem to find banding in their shots.
