Last year we have done some work on Creating a Firefox OS Indic IME as a part of 2014 Google summer of code under Swathanthra Malayalam Computing , the Indian Language technology collective
Santhosh Thottingal, Tim  , Rudy and myself mentored this project 

For Android we are maintaining Indic Keyboard , very popular AOSP based free and open source keyboard which supports 23 Languages and 50+ layouts (Many South Asian languages). It is used by more than 200K people via play store have dictionaries and wordlists used for Indian Languages 

Indic keyboard for Android uses popular Keyboards in each language . I love to see similar functionality  in Firefox OS.
