But I did update the man page :-)

For SuSE Linux 7.1 and 7.2 I had left the default as it was in
the upstream kinput2 sources.

Personally I preferred the keybindings in
/usr/lib/X11/ccdef/ccdef.kinput2.egg and thought that
the keybindings in /usr/lib/X11/ccdef/ccdef.kinput2 were very strange.

But as the upstream default was like this, I thought that
somebody must like these keybindings and didn't change it.

Then I received feedback from people complaining about the weird
keybindings of kinput2/Wnn. Some requested to change the default.
Some were even telling me that kinput2 with Wnn was broken. But it
wasn't, they were just confused by the unusual keybindings.

As nobody seemed to like the upstream default keybindings, I changed
the default for SuSE Linux >= 7.3. 

I didn't receive any feedback about kinput2/Wnn keybindings since.
Maybe nobody uses SuSE Linux anymore :-)
