Yes.

Good question. I'm planning to provide the input method GUI
configuration tool and with an option like "never use input
methods", to disable the whole input methods for people who
don't want to use input methods at all. but the default
behavior will enables input methods as scim has already done
in rawhide.

Ideally even if it's running by default for all the locales,
any problems shouldn't be happened and if there are, it
should be fixed. also we are trying to improve the
keybinding stuff with having them in each IMEs. as IME
specific hotkey I mean. I hope it would be helpful in that
case. If you have any issues, please file a bug into
bugzilla. we would appreciate your bug report.

Thanks,
