Sure. It makes sense that you'd like to cycle through some layouts with the
keyboard, but not all. It's the use of the term "secondary layout" here that
makes it confusing. A simple checkbox saying "available via keyboard
switching" or something even clearer would be better.

I have never seen anybody say that. You know that nobody has said that.

Lots of people are doing their best to get the functionality that you need
into GNOME in the best possible way. It's discussion and attention-to-detail
like this that has made GNOME so great. Don't panic yet.
