please understand, it is not against the users, but it is against the resellers who are flashing own modded, buggy multilang fastboot MIUI ROMs via EDL mode onto new devices before sale.
In this case users may judge xiami/miui based on that buggy ROM. So, I think this action by Xiaomi is understandable. It doesn't pain for users because valid users can flash official dev ROM onto stable release via updater app and start the unlocking bootloader process and after that the world become wide open...
Resellers do not care users they just care about themselves because they do not want to lose potential customers because of lack of languages. Rather they flashing own modded buggy ROM with integrated stolen language pack to get more sales with selling "multilangual MIUI ROM out of the box" advertisement, but not caring they cause troubles for users by this...(as no update, no support, no unlock BL possibility...etc)
I am very happy for this action by Xioami! Thanks a lot Xiaomi!
