Sadly anyone actually as long you are not buying your phone directly from Xiaomi.
Most of the sel ...

The main reason that was given for locking the Bootloader, was to stop resellers from selling phones with fake ROMs. It seems that the only people  being hampered by the locked Bootloader, are Xiaomi's customers, who are trying to revert back to a genuine ROM

You are right, but this is not the only reason. With locked bootloader if someone steals your phone (and you have pin/pattern/finger print to protect you phone) he can't really use your phone.
Also sellers are using EDL mode to flash the fake ROM and now Xiaomi blocked it. Sadly it's not enough and sellers will continue flashing those ROM's/

Basically, the true Xiaomi customer is the Chinese Re-seller. As such bought the phone from Xiaomi.
The Chinese Reseller passes on the manipulated phone than to a 3rd party.

So it's more like: "Chinese Reseller are so retarded and annoy  their own customers."

While: Xiaomi tries to avoid this, yet all efforts are wasted as long as Chinese resellers stay retarded and manipulated phones.
Xiaomi Mi5 Basic, so sweet
