It's true that IBus ships its own UI and keeps its own settings
including keyboard shortcuts. But, one of the goals for this
integration is to define GNOME settings and shortcuts for what makes
sense to be in GNOME and expose them in GNOME UI like System Settings
and gnome-shell. One of those is the shortcut to switch among
configured "input sources" which allows you to switch between say a
plain German XKB layout and Chinese (Pinyin).

This should change soon and I'd be really thankful if you gave it a
try then and give us feedback on it.
