This might be true for a majority of users, but I think there is a
considerable number of people where this isn't the case: In university
environments, when going to foreign countries, sharing a computer with
others, programmers preferring US layout, etc. Often you need to cope
with the keyboard that's present, but you can always switch to the
language you prefer.

Thus, matching the keyboard as a default selection is a very good
thing, but it should still be selectable.
