Bug Description

I understand the purpose of that patch is to hide the concept of IBus from user.

However, "Keyboard Input Methods" is certainly not a good name for preferences/configuration stuff.
Check the attachment to see how it would look lile if a user searchs "IBus" in Dash.

After clicking "Keyboard Input Methods", the poped up window is titled "IBus Preferences" anyway.

We also need to select "ibus" in "Language Support", right?

Put it in another way, we cannot actually hide the concept of IBus.

So I guess we should revert the changes except the third one that change the instruction of enabling IBus.

Not really, the purpose of the patch is to have a description for the entry in the dash (or in menus) that users can understand. It's the same reason gedit is called "text editor" and not "gedit" or that eog is called "image viewer" and not "eog" ... users want a real world description

Adding a design component to the bug, that needs input from there

Changed in ibus (Ubuntu):

Names like "Keyboard Input Methods" make sense when it appears in "System Settings" (GNOME Control Center).
But "Keyboard Input Methods" doesn't make sense as an App, right?

Just to make it clear, "Keyboard Input Methods" launcher starts ibus-setup currently.
