Right, so the current behaviour is not an Ubuntu bug but how current GNOME behaves. They believe it's not possible to "guess" what input method an user for a defined locale is going to need and don't want to have a cluttered menu with a bunch of options which the user is not going to need.

The recommended way to set it up on the installed system is to use gnome-initial-setup on first login (which we don't do in Ubuntu), that wouldn't resolve the installer/live cd cases though where the user is just going to need to use the settings to configure it.

That's not a simple fix but something we need to give more consideration to next cycle, I'm lowering the importance and unassigning, it's not likely we change anything for artful now.
