For example for the U960, Etotalk, a Chinese supplier provide for an extra $4.99 a Etotalk MOD ROM that provides the aspects I noted. According to Etotalk their custom MOD ROM provides:

Now most of China branded phones come without google play store (android market) and only Chinese because they are for selling in China only, so they are locked and unrooted, if you need to use it well in other countries, you may select our etotalk mod rom.
Etotalk MOD ROM is built by etotalk engineering team, which will optimize the phone performance based on the official firmware.

The service package includes Multi Language OS, Google Play Store, Unlocked and Rooted. It will also delete all non-useful Chinese apps.

Note: this service is for preinstalled only, not including the rom file.
I suspect other Chinese suppliers will do the same.
