The OLPC XO sets the keyboard based upon manufacturing data, since the
keyboard layout is determined by the hardware. The language setting in
the Control Panel is just for the language of the interface, which is
independent of the physical keyboard.

We do need to resolve this for SoaS at some point. But as Martin
points out, it is possible to set  by editing a configuration file...
