That's not correct.  Ask anyone whose keyboard doesn't work right because
its XKB description file is not quite right.  Or someone who, e.g., feels
that the Alt keys should generate Meta keysyms.

People actually get quite passionate about their keyboards working the way
they want to, so it is good to let them modify these files without having
to disable XKB and use bad old xmodmap instead.
