This would be an epilogue worth reading.
The POV's are virtually always redshirts and minor characters, although they have been getting more important lately. I think we'll definitelly be getting someone in the south.

Prologue and epilogue chapters don't count as POV.

And then meeting Euron's Silence at the end of the chapter.

Whatever prologue there is for TWOW must be important to the story of that book. It must provide insight into a key event later or character(s) that goes on to play a key role, or it must change the direction of a storyline. I would hope GRRM chooses a prologue for these reasons and not feel the need to become slave to precedent (however coincidental). To further the plot, it should really be connected with one of the existing storylines, preferrably one which we have not seen in a while (e.g. the Vale or Riverlands) or where events are clouded with mystery/distance. I really hope it's not just a tourist chapter on a new location or, worst, introduces a whole new storyline into the mix. It's too late for the Tyrells.

We dont hear of him since the first book, and then, bam, everybody forgot him and he's the prologue in book 7 and dies alone in the Lands of Always Winter.

Where as Maesters are the closest that Westeros has to scientists, doctors, etc.
I think a Maester at a place we haven't seen yet, in the Reach, as it is taken by Euron, the Maester is then killed by Euron's Valyrian magic.
Someone suggested the Maester at House Redwyne.

But I'm gonna stick with my theory of a Benjen prologue for ADOS.

But my favourite suggestion here is Valyria for sure. As well as the north of the wall/ south of the wall sequencing, there is also an ice and fire sequence, or an Others/Dragon themed sequence. Even number books - the comet at Dragonstone and the light in the citadel at Old Town - relate to the return of Dragons. Wouldn't smouldering Valyria fit perfectly? As well as being just awesome.
