As far as my experience with other Operating Systems goes:
we need to make the keyboard layout configurable in the initrd.
You can already achieve this with a custom initrd today, but
having a service would be more convenient.
For expected defaults we should make this hypothetical service
default to en-us.
I see two possible entry points to writing the service here:

1) extending the console-keymap-service
2) writing a new service that extends the initrd and reuses code from
   the previously mentioned service.

Logical mistake can happen, I've constructed this from memory.
