Probably because in neighbouring countries, people still refer to cities by their russian names?

Still, names should be written in another script.

... save for the PRC not allowing in foreign-registered vehicles, nor honoring foreign driver's licenses. I really wonder how rallyes like Paris-Beijing cope with this, do they get some exceptional permits?

AFAIK the PRC does allow foreign-registered vehicles, but they must pass a Chinese technical inspection and get temporary Chinese license plates. As for driving licenses, most Chinese cities issue special ones for foreigners, but there must be some other deal for those entering the country with their own vehicle.

Can those cars cross provincial boundaries, or are the limited to the province of issued temporary plate?

Foreigners entering China with their own vehicles need to:

1. contract an authorised agent to get the paper work done (mountain high), which costs thousands of pounds and takes a few months to complete
2. get the temporary driving license
3. get the temporary number plate giving the vehicle inspection/test is passed
4. have a travel guide accompanying them all the way through their stay in China, border to border

They can travel to other places other than where the number plate is issued but they have to stay on the planned route.

By the way, It's NOT easy for Chinese shitizens to drive their own Chinese registered cars out of China. They would be required to follow the temporary export/import process, often by getting an ATA carnet, the deposit for this thing would be at least 50% of your car value (you don't have a say about how much your car is worth though. normally they are considered as new). According to one of the custom officers, the chinese car industry would collapse instantly if cars (chinese registered or not) were allowed in or out freely. It seems she really believed what she said.

BAKAD

Construction of the 66 kilometer Great Almaty Ring Road, also known as 'BAKAD' will start in March 2018. It is a six-lane motorway, class 1a (the highest).

I hope that any day the black line to Khorgas (Chinese border) becomes a motorway too. IIRC there was a motorway U/C towards Western Kazakhstan, but nothing planned in Russia. It would be the missing link from my hometown to Beijing (and it would even continue to Busan if it weren't for North Korea).

The Almaty - Khorgos motorway is actually under construction (and may even be partially completed, satellite imagery in this area is spotty).
