As far as I know, on other OSes it was, because they do not have
evdev. But of course the input from, say, Oracle engineers about
Solaris would be useful here. Or from FreeBSD ppl.

As I said before, I am not really defending the status quo in relation
to xkb model - and from some point of view I like it when the code and
UI is simplified. I am asking the people's opinion about the general
strategy in treating non-linux systems. Or, perhaps, "officially"
admitting that we do not have a policy here - just decide on
case-by-case basis.
