Those options are for pc console driver and used almost on install
floppies.  IMO, wscons(4) has already JP-106 keyboard support.

So, there might be some room for consideration.

o It could be add for install floppies.  It isn't hard work.
o But if it is desirable, It might better for pc console driver to add
  loading keymap function.  This enable better install environment for
  those who uses non-US keyboard like above.

Once someone mentions that slim-up wscons(4) for install media, is it
really possible?  Or someone working on it?
