Is being unable to switch to free vassal wars WAD?
As Chinese Imperial? Yes, if your Mandate level is Average or higher. Infighting is disorderly, and disorder in China (and realms claiming to be China) should generally be a sign of the Mandate of Heaven (possibly) being lost.
On the flip side, if the Mandate drops below Average, the emperor cannot forbid vassal wars (except by calling for Realm Peace or through the use of Favours) until his Mandate level improves again, and times get interesting in various ways: certain factions can be joined by councillors at all times (barring an NAP), external inheritance can't be blocked, and the emperor gets a rather sizeable negative modifier that affects various things (revolt risk, taxes, levies, etc.).
