Because Stephen said so.  :)  Actually, it's subjective, and seems to be
the preferred solution these days.  Also, I found, installing Core 4
that the only one of the packages installed during setup is canna, so
you'd have to use yum to get kinput2 anyway.

I'm a crowd pleaser. 

Don't remove your current setup at the moment.  I'd be grateful though
if you do this:   Stop canna, install scim, anthy and scim-anthy, change
the .bash_profile variables as directed (just comment out the ones
you're using with a #---keep the LC_CTYPE as that doesn't change) and
see if it works for you.  If so, use it a few days, see if you like it

Stephen had thought that canna doesn't do utf8, but that turned out to
be incorrect--so, you ask, what is the advantage.  I can only say that
it seems a bit quicker and less clunky, if you'll excuse the word, a
slightly nicer gui interface.   There is also skim, designed to work
more with KDE, but I haven't tried it.  

Actucally, I was going to send you a private email with this request,
(that is, will the instrucxtions work for you as a beginner, do you like
it better) but since you asked....
