I'm fine with that explanation. You're right, "locale" is easier. :-)

We had discussed it, but I don't recall a specific resolution either way.  I don't consider consistency with 'inputMethod' as important as ease of use, since they aren't particularly related.

Also, 'inputMethod' is only on Text events, while 'locale' is on several different interfaces.
