Will Wayland also ship with broken keyboard layout switching?

This mentions a fix for X would be to switch to xkbcommon.  xkbcommon is
what weston uses, so it seems likely to not have this problem.  

Wayland is a protocol, and I think it's appropriate to say keyboard input
implementation is not specified by it, so another implementation could do
it a different way.  Weston is just the reference implementation.  But I
think others are expected to use xkbcommon.
