I find you last two sentences confusing.
Separate implementation can due to many reasons.
Can you point out a good reason for separate implementation?

For IBus integration in general, I have several concerns.
1. How can currently not-so-good IBus engines being improved?
2. IBus 1.5 is going to handle input engines/keyboard layouts in a way
very similar to Mac OS X.
The Mac OS X way is simple but restricted, so some objections already
appear IBus's issue tracker.
3. Can advocates of other IMFs accept IBus integrated GNOME?
