No. The ability to let each user set their language preferences is
primarily controlled via Language Support. It does not depend on whether

Good to know, Robert. Are you able to say something about e.g. the
keyboard layout and universal access?

I'm not yet, but I plan to make myself involved to assist with the i18n
matters. :)  I'll try to ensure that the current functionality with
respect to languages and locales is preserved in the Oneiric release.
