Wayland input method support

Better specification for Wayland input methods

As Linux distributions switch to Wayland, some functionality is still incomplete. One of them is being able to input non-Latin scripts. It is a necessity for a large portion of the world, yet it's not standardized across Wayland environments. The same text input functionality is needed for typing on mobile Linux, which, considering how many people use smartphones rather than laptops, might be even more important for Linux adoption. This project wants to bridge that gap, by continuing the effort of standardizing input-method protocols started for Phosh in Squeekboard, gtk, and wlroots.
