Quote from East Pendulum:-
"Le patrouilleur de sauvetage « 海巡03 » a été mis à l’eau aujourd’hui au chantier naval de Huangpu. Le navire de 5560t sera affecté à la MSA de l’île de Hainan."

English translation:-
"The rescue patrol ship "海巡03" was launched today at Huangpu Shipyard. The 5,560t vessel will be assigned to the Hainan Island MSA."

What's the upper boundary for displacement for ships made and launched by this shipyard? Weren't the PLAN deep sea tugs over 6,000t? This could easily build a frigate around 5000 to 6000 ton displacement.

Maybe it would be better off building 20 more Haixun 03’s? Or other Haixun’s.

They are expecting to build 12 more 054A and an unknown number of 054B. How many Haixuns can they build?
It’s probably cheaper to use a Haixun’s that 054As and less threatening too. It would cause much less controversy if a Haixun docked at a BRI port than a 054A.

We see the US sending large coast guard vessels to the SCS and also also building more of them. They might just want to be conservative and build a large and heavy coast guard, it matches what they are doing with 054As, the same conservative philosophy could apply here.

Chinas “patrol and rescue” area is growing and should become global, or at least able to protect SLOCs from threats other than war, creating a need.

I read that Chinas coast guard ships are also designed to be able to physically ram other ships, is that true? In which case they can do things frigates can’t which gives more acceptable usage options to planners.

They already have the Haijing class vessels, which at 12,000 tons, are the largest CG cutters in the world. They should build more of these then

Passive aggressive tactics in the SCS and other seas involve four types. The first is the Chinese Navy, we know that. The second involves the Chinese Coast Guard and the MSA. The third involves government oceanographic and surveillance vessels, and the fourth involves the maritime militia.

And a would a fifth be the commercial vessels built with war planning in mind, such as the ferry and semi-submersibles we recently saw exercising? Or is that considered militia?

The RO-ROs and ferrys are likely spec'ed for it. This isn't new, those specs went public and goes back to the early 2000s. This means all those RO-ROs and ferrys from then on, are built to a required military spec.
