A #keyboard to enter "foreign" characters ..

#Google announced new functionality for people who search text in a different script.. "ISO 9995" is the ISO standard defining layouts of computer keyboards. It is a great and honest way of enabling people to enter search items..

Russian keyboard layout

The idea is lovely and, when this "virtual" keyboard is available not only on their search bar but also as an entry method for where the cursor is.

I would love for Google to go overboard and support scripts like the one for  Javanese, for Malayalam, Kannada and Nepali.. As the list goes on and on, I will not go overboard but, you get the idea..
Thanks,
