You have been waiting long enough to get your app into Gnome. You

I couldn't catch you on IRC when you asked me about this. Sorry
about that, but tea had arrived :) 

It should be UK. UK includes GB within it. GB doesn't include
all of UK. Additionally, the keyboard layout (which is, after
all, what we're talking about) is specifically called UK. 
Apparently IBM came up with a lot of these keyboard layouts 
originally, and they called the keyboard layout in question UK, 
and it has been that ever since.
