Comment(by dsd):

 Both clicking on a text input field, and using the frame to open the
 keyboard, arrives at the same entry point in maliit.

 #0  MInputContextConnection::activateContext (this=0x8430828,
     at minputcontextconnection.cpp:448
 #1  0xa7660796 in m_dbus_glib_ic_connection_activate_context
     at minputcontextglibdbusconnection.cpp:235
 #2  0xa7660152 in
     (closure=0xafe334a8, return_value=0xafe334e0, n_param_values=2,
     param_values=0x84b2230, invocation_hint=0x0, marshal_data=
 GError**)>) at mdbusglibicconnectionserviceglue.h:257

 So an API change will be needed to make this work right: the frame device
 needs a way of saying "really, really open the keyboard".

 Also not really worth looking into this until #12278 is fixed, otherwise
 you won't be able to type when we do get it appearing on request.
