What I want to avoid is that this becomes a de-facto "Catalan keyboard".
I'm happy with providing the support, but calling it "the" Catalan
keyboard makes me feel uneasy.

I didn't say the keyboard exists, I know it does. I have concerns about
the lack of open discussion there has been when creating the layout.

I've discussed it in other Catalan lists and I don't remember anyone
saying "I would use it". I wouldn't, either :)
