| We already do that, kind of, as we use the XKB configuration from the

What I'm mainly concerned are ibus. if we can have additional input source for ibus for certain languages, that would be nice though. that said it's a little another story. even if we have the sort of the table of the input source for ibus corresponding to the language, it may still introduces a regression in some cases. all of the necessary information for migration is in the ibus's configuration and it may be not necessarily same to what we expect. I suppose it can be migrated by rule. but I wasn't sure where it should be done.

If Matthias's idea is the way to go, we could add another path for upgrading: if the ibus's configuration is available, use it otherwise pick up from the table according to the display language say.
