Those days _are_ past us; the proof is you can choose about any language/KB layout combo in the existence. However, whet talking about a reasonable _default_, QWERTY seems like the most reasonable one. Do you have another candidate? English is the common denominator in the civilized (computer literate/...) world today. To view it under another angle: what language the text description of the menu allowing to choose the KB is written in?...
PS. English is neither my mother tongue nor the official language of the country I live in; yet in all computer applications I prefer it as the default.
