You can do it if you wish - you'd just need to set cPanel's MySQL to 'unmanaged' so that you can manage your own version.

Understand if there are major changes between what cPanel provides and what is available in 5.6 - some cPanel tools may not work right [i.e. until cPanel says it's fully supported you're on your own as far as support most likely].

As far as trying it? I will give it a try on my dev server - I'm curious :).

Sure. I have a lot of mission-critical testing to get done this week so hopefully I'll get that done as well as I'm curious as well.

Hello :)

The official feature request for MySQL 5.6 support is available at:

cPanel - MySQL 5.6 Support

Support for MySQL 5.6 is expected in Q1 of 2014.

Thank you.
