The TechTablets site has finally gotten the MiPad 2 with Windows 10.
Spoilers up front:
1) The USB-C port runs at USB 2.0 speeds:
2) There’s still no HDMI-out (the Android version lacks it too).

Xiaomi could put a stop to this by offering the tablet via their Mi Store. There’s nothing that would prevent them from doing so. This tablet isn’t threatened by any patent issues, like their phones are.
