If you don't actually *use* it (I mean activate it by its shortcut) to 
enter chinese ideograms or similar things which do require an input 
method, and you just want to switch from one keyboard layout to another, 
you may safely disable/remove it without any side effect.

Yes, it would appear that Microsoft is still a reference to system 
packagers, and unfortunately also to desktop designers. A lot of 
stupid/crazy stuff Microsoft style things are creeping into Linux 
desktops, recently...
