OK - I'll ask.
Why the time limit?
Does this add any weight to the possibility of a 5.2D release?

no idea on the limit, the only thing I could think of is that they are using the feedback to better the replacement.... so if thats the case (which I hope its not) the replacement wont be coming anytime soon because they wont have the time to make the enhancements :)

who knows what its all about

This is great. I just did mine, but I wonder if it matters if it i bought it used from a personal seller. I guessed at purchase time/price/and location.

I bought my 5D secondhand. No warranty card, and I just put the purchase date as the date I paid the seller.
