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

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.

This bug was fixed in the package ibus - 1.5.10-1ubuntu1

ibus (1.5.10-1ubuntu1) wily; urgency=medium

  * Merge with Debian, remaining changes:
    - ubuntu-no-notification.patch: Don't show the notification if not
      actually upgrading from a previous version.
    - ubuntu-disable-trigger.patch: Disable input method switching under
      Unity; it's handled by gnome-settings-daemon.
    - ubuntu-forward-panel-properties.patch:
      Augment the panel service D-Bus interface so that external consumers
      can detect when the panel service properties are changed.
    - Switch gnome-icon-theme to adwaita-icon-theme
  * ubuntu-title-update.patch:
    - Only update IBus Preferences information for Unity desktop (LP: #1133101)
  * 0001-Set-sync-process_key_event-in-ibus-x11.patch:
    - cherry-pick upstream patch to set sync process_key_event in ibus-x11,
      avoiding the possible misorder of X11 event when async method is used
      (LP: #1466442)
