The reason I listed it here is because in order for Wine to know what 
language the current keyboard is, it will also need to know what's the 
current keyboard.

I have thought of two ways for Wine to do that - either it checks what 
name the symbol files is loaded as, or it scans the keymap (as it does 
today). Either way - it will have to have some mapping between currently 
loaded keymap and language. Hence the affect it has over X keyboard 

I would appretiate it if you tell me if you think this logic is wrong.
