Not really necessary. Scim's im-switch setting already makes scim
default (which is what "im-switch -s scim" do) for Chinese, Japanese,
and Korean locales in etch. If some language decides that SCIM is good
as the default input method, they can just ask scim package to raise
im-switch setting priority for their locale.
Ubuntu needs to manually set im-switch default more often because their
language-support packages are real (meta-)packages, and frequently
installed in systems with other locales.
