Sorry, but it's not completely truth. I own this device while i living in Moscow, Russia.
I didn't knew Chinese, but i successfully unlocked device by using WeChat support, speaking English.
Chinese mobile number was not mandatory for me, support engineer unlocked dev mode for me easily.
I think it's okay to have official openwrt support for this device and it's much better than using average quality patch from external repository.
So please don't remove official support.
