Particularly for keybindings it's not merely about UI consistency - parallel keybindings configuration means the responsibility for resolving conflicting settings is left entirely to users (and of course they'll need to figure out first that this is the reason for stuff not working as expected)

To give a concrete example of this. I have German, English and Chinese IM installed. But I also use Eclipse very often. On a newly installed system I find that the Short Cut `ctrl` + `space` in Eclipse (which activates the Autocomplete Feature) collides with the activation short cut for ibus. I usually then deactivate this ibus short cut to get eclipse working again.

IMHO, as an end user I would prefer if the short cuts were handled by gnome because then I would be notified if there is a conflicting definition of the same short cut for different functions.
