It is not necessary to modify a cable to fast charge the device. All
that is needed is something like [1] (which costs US$3) and the
software from [2] and you have fast charging without modifying a cable
or relying upon the folks from OpenMoko to get into the accessory

The only thing that the the custom charger does is include a resistor
that provides GTA0x a way to recognize the charger so that it
automatically draws the full amount and [2] isn't needed.

Opening the accessory business is A Good Thing. Including a charger is
not necessary.
