Beijing is more concerned about maintaining the status quo.

I would actually quibble with that. I think Beijing is most interested in preserving Beijing. Thus, they're very open to change (see recent economic reforms) as long as that change quells unrest and serves to keep them in power.

It has to end somewhere, though, because ultimately what will paradoxically "keep them in power" will be competitive elections.

But if you view Chinese government policy through the lens of self-preservation, my own opionion is that it makes a lot more sense.
