You mention fair points. But like you said about inventory maintenance, don't you think that it would be hell for the stores to have AKs, SIGs, TARs, INSAS, etc. at a macro level?

As for your question, I believe usage would be of 7.62 X 39 mm calibre rifle? A carbine when engaged in an urban scenario at best?
7.62x39 in mountains? Also when PLA have body armour? That's not gonna go mostly the right way

You are right; I was assuming more of a Paki/roohani yahoos scenario. But against PLA's armour, 51 would be much more potent.

Even paki are getting cheap body armour now.the whole point of americans running to NGSW was that they saw in syria terrorists who had cheap body armour that can relatively stop 5.56.so first the americans gave a tender for 7.62x51 rifle yup they almost went back to the old cartridge but cancelled it and went for NGSW .body armor is gonna be a real head ache as even terrorists will be able to get them.so rifle cartridges are coming back.with advanced optics each soldiers are gonna be more designated marksmen than old "spray and pray"
