This is exactly what the upstream of xkeyboard-config wants to achieve.  
Only one question!  Not one question that includes all layouts around 
the world but one question customized for your teritory.

Only one question provided the US QWERTY layout is added to the list of 
France and the other countries that need it. ;-)

No, I am not joking. :-)

Yes, there are problems in the current state of xkeyboard-config but I 
think the proper way to deal with these problems is to report them to 
the upstream rather than to do something Debian-specific.
