Could the OM-D be upgraded to focus peaking via firmware?

add a feature.

When the E-520 came out, IS did not work w legacy lenses.  They added that as a FW update.

I don't know, however, if they originally planned to include it but it wasn't ready in time, or if they buckled under the pressure of many folks asking for it.  They never did add focus conformation for legacy lenses.

Now if the E-P5 is using the same architecture, same support chips, same mapping of circuits as the E-M5, it should take very little effort to import the new features to the previous body.  And yes, it would make for quite a bit of good will.
