Philippe is absolutely right here. Most of us on this list are
character-set and i18n wonks, and some of us have customized our own
keyboard layouts, but we should not delude ourselves into thinking we
represent ordinary users. Many people are emotionally tied to a
particular keyboard layout and become very confused when faced with
something different. Trying to persuade them to adopt a "universal"
keyboard, so they can type characters in a language they may not know,
is an exercise in social frustration.
