You asked what users think & I'll give you my opinion .
  Xiaomi do not want to encourage more use ...

I agree with in som parts. But My bootloader is locked and I keep loocked because I trust in xiaomi and pocophone has a global rom, so I prefer to use it ilike i received it. But i receive a notification to update from  official OTA and now this was bricked after receiving an offical OTA update.
I understand your concern for system security, but xiaomi can not punish the end user and leave it in the black market hands.
