I'm not advocating another setting in that dialog, but why do you think
"the kb layout probably never changes"?
As far as I've seen, people who use multiple languages typically do switch
1) Between Latin-based layouts with different "additional" characters
2) Between e.g. Latin / Cyrillic
(Unless they're nerds like me who have made their own layout with all the
characters they need for their languages - but I have an inkling that I'm
in the minority here ;)

How would the expert setting even work, would it "lock" the kb layout in
LibO, regardless what the system-wide kb layout is? I sense trouble with
that approach.

Best regards,
