I find that unlikely. Is there something more fundamentally different about the two?

Programming parallel devices such as GALs and PROMs will be annoying just because of the oddball programming voltages needed for a lot of them. The WCH Windows drivers, based on some of their unintended side-behaviors, appear to be genuinely written by themselves or a contracted consulting company, etc.
We looked at the details of the CH and CH way cpp2130 in Not sure how current they are but I sometimes find going back to older tech makes for an easier intro to newer tech. And for some reason, I saw this CH and had to go through the same process.
For example, he did a speed test that was this simple: In most cases, it is easier to just buy a cheap universal programmer unit. It left a poor impression.
That said, decapping and dieshotting is a thing, so maybe they did reverse-engineer the chip. I could not find a reason to ever design in the Microchip UART chipset — it was slow and buggy, and I believe had some irrecoverable driver crashes in some disconnect scenarios.
Does ilnux here have a description of the vendor-specific device control requests that are mentioned in revision 1. It has shortcomings, but it supports customization, so you can build on it as required for your application.

Linux Adds CH GPIO | Hackaday
We already have the alternative: The ability to share and hack drivers is one of the things that makes Linux so great for hackers. I think bit-banging over USB is never going to pass my smell test, and I am not really interested in constraining myself to one of the supported protocol modes I2C, etc.
I find the base from which you make your suggestion Labeled on the linked page: Shame they pissed off everybody with their driver shenanigans. Now how do you keep that server from using an IP range and with bad luck IP address already in use on the host? Email required Address never made public.
CP WriteRead Command using LibUSB for Linux
Sigrok supports the FX2 as a logic analyzer front end, and various other open firmware examples are available. I think the problem is that the character device way still needs to make its way into libraries and tutorials — hopefully, it happens soon! Not a great design but worked well enough.
