I took a quick look and saw two things.

1. doc/tex-ref.tex has to be updated. In addition to the obvious stuff at the beginning (version, date,...), I suggest something like the following:

--- tex-ref.tex.~1.26.~ 2010-02-21 07:22:14.000000000 -0500
+++ tex-ref.tex 2012-09-14 14:55:46.549469600 -0400

(Or should the second 'Biber' be '\star Biber'? I don't really understand the significance of the star.)

2. Somewhere we should mention the variable LaTeX-always-use-Biber. Here's one possibility, but maybe there's a better place:

--- auctex.texi.~1.310.~        2012-08-17 02:59:49.000000000 -0400
