Hmm, sorry but that's unclear.

You're telling me that abnt2 keyboards and US keyboards are common in
Brazil. Fine.

Users *do* have choice between those. Actually, they can even choose a
French, German, Thai or whatever keymap.

The point is knowing if there is a need to have the choice for
*br-latin1* and this, *during installation*, knowing that choosing
br-latin1 will indeed setup a system with a US keymapping in X (so,
pretty confusing).

I don't want to remove the choice for ABNT2 vs. US. I suggest removing
the br-latin1 choice...
