Interesting.  I'm sure I'll buy whatever they put out, but DLC so soon after release...  I'd rather they just include stuff they already have in the tank in the original release.

I agree, I hate it when companies do that but I'm not sure that's the case here.  First off, the there's no official release date... all this theorizing seems to be based on one screen shot showing some achievements which is pretty inconclusive.
 
I think we also need to take the development process into account.  Once the game goes gold and the discs are being made they are past the point of no return.  Sometimes it takes a couple weeks to print the discs for release, especially for an AAA title like Halo.  If the game was well tested and there are no known bugs to be fixed the developers don't want to just sit on their hands and wait, developing dlc is only natural in that circumstance.
 
I really hope this isn't just a map pack though.
 
Some folks think it might be telling Jun and Halsey's story as they escape and if this is the case it is highly unlikely this was already in the tank.  You play as Noble 6, not as anyone else at any point in the game so the escape kind of falls outside of the scope of the current story as you are experiencing the war as Noble 6.  I would love it if they did release that mission though.
