There is next to a zero chance of a Berkshire special dividend prior to year end. But it is interesting to think about how large it would have to be to make a dent in the cash pile. A $10K/A dividend would not even consume half of the cash pile.

I imagine that more long term shareholders would be irritated to have their tax planning screwed up for the year with a last minute giant dividend.
