I got a chance to play with the ST-E3-RT last week. It turns out the remote release terminal is to allow for firing the camera via the ST-E3-RT, using either a slave Speedlite 600EX-RT as the trigger, or using another camera with ST-E3-RT or 600EX-RT in "Link" mode for multi-camera shooting.
On pre-2012 cameras you connect that terminal to the remote release terminal of the camera via cable, but on the new bodies it's all done right through the hot shoe; pretty neat.
Now all I need is about $6K so I can buy a 5D Mark III, three 600EX-RTs and an ST-E3-RT, and I'll be set.
