IMO using win32 IME on Linux is necessary for some people. In fact even
most Chinese users don't know how many Chinese IMEs there exist, some
of them have no alternative at all. Also, some handwriting input method
editors and some speech-to-text input method editors have no
alternative on Linux. Another reason to implement win32 IME bridge is,
some win32 IME, such as sogou pinyin, google pinyin, are much better than
there alternative on Linux ( ibus-pinyin, sunpinyin), maybe it is hard to
understanded by non Chinese users...
