1. It would not do it if you do not have German layout in your current
configuration - it can only switch to one of the configured layouts
(we do not provide interface to change the whole configuration)
2. I really hope the app would make that behavior optional.

I would not be so sure. You are talking about people who write
documents with the same script (Latin alphabet). But once you start
writing multi-alphabet documents (English, Russian) - that feature is
I agree that making that feature default behavior could be too much,
but having it available for people who need it would be a really nice
touch. Exactly as you said "allowing the special case where feasible".
