Given the IM related changes in 15.04, making fcitx the default IM
framework on all Japanese installs is probably the simplest way to keep
offering fcitx as default on the Japanese remix, and thus preventing a
kind of regression.

Assuming that there is a consensus that fcitx is better than ibus for
inputting Japanese, it makes sense to me to do it 15.04.
