China Dev ROM required before installing TWRP + CyanogenMod ?

Hi everyone, reading across the forum for years, but posting my first comment now. Here´s a quick one and I hope anyone can help:

I have a Xiaomi Mi5, am currently on MIUI, the bootloader is already unlocked and I want to install @ ´s . I ordered the phone from a Chinese shop incl. a preinstalled Play Store. In a pretty detailed tutorial I read it says that, besides an unlocked bootloader, an already installed China Dev ROM is required before installing any other custom ROM.

Is that true? Or isn´t it sufficient to allow root + install TWRP & CM13 as next steps?

Thanks in advance.
