Restricted units shouldn't cross borders; this would have been coded into the game if it was possible; I believe the developers looked into it.
Without it, the Japanese have 4000 AV available in Manchuria, another 1000 or so in the RTA, and the Allies have Indian Troops and Chinese hordes that can invade SE Asia at will.
I agree with Dan on the China strat bombing, we have that rule. As a counter-balance, we have rule that Japanese can't be strat bombed either until 1944 (basically to prevent Allies from strat bombing all the OIL early). By 1944, Allies can get good fighters into China, and Allied strat bombing campaigns began in earnest.
The good thing about AE: There are a whole raft of gameplay HR in WITP that no longer apply. Airbase stacking, CV stacking, PT boat TFs, etc. etc.
