With multiple problems existing, any that can be dealt with should be
dealt with.  There are large groups of Tor users in Germany who are
frustrated with these horrendous laws, and that means that it will be
much easier to deal with escaping data retention laws in Germany than
dealing with the numerous issues which you are presenting about ORs in
China.  This does not mean that they should not be dealt with, it just
means that when there is a movement to fix a certain problem it might
hurt rather than helps to claim that a similar but not necessarily
worse problem should be dealt with first.
