 From my personal experience: A few years ago, installing a Dvorak 
keyboard (which is what I use every day for typing) didn't remap the 
control keys, so that Ctrl-C was still on the bottom row of the left 
hand, and so on. For me, it was really terrible.

It may not be the same for everybody, but my experience suggests that it 
may be similar for some others, and that therefore such a mapping should 
only be voluntary, not default.
