I haven't placed a mass order for plugs, I have added a few connectors to an existing order. I'm going to make three and go from there.
I know of one person who has done this (the OP). Others have talked about doing it, but nobody has reported their findings. After doing some digging around the service manual and with the OP's finding I was going to do some testing myself, but I wanted to try to source out the plugs so I could do my testing without cutting up my wire harness.

So is this the scenario if the dummy plug works?

Unlock steering wheel, unplug steering lock connector, put new dummy connector plug with brown pin disabled in between steering lock and current connector.

Steering lock now set permanently unlocked. If so desired, you can return to stock setting by removing dummy plug and reconnecting steering lock with original connector.

Nice and neat, no wires to cut

so basically turn the car to ACC (listen for the lock to wind and unlock), then unplug car harness from steering-lock, plug one end of the new bdl99-hotwire harness to the car harness and the other end to the steering-lock (?)

Ok on a functioning lock with the soon to be made dummy plug/hotwire harness installed. How will we know it's working? When the car is off (w/the plug installed) we shouldn't have a key light on and we should be able the turn the wheel? Will this tell us what we want to know?
