What significance does the default input source have on GNOME? Are we 
affected atm? I'm asking because my understanding is that this is 
determined in Ubuntu by the installer and language-selector (pkg_depends).

May be worth mentioning the history, btw:

14.04 - ibus-anthy
16.04 - fcitx-mozc
17.10 - ibus-mozc
