Well, I think adding that as configuration option in a configuration
file would be enough. But KDE4 has that configuration option ("Disable
keyboard shortcuts"), BTW. I know Xfce is not KDE, but maybe it makes
decision a bit easier. ;-)

But if I would implement that in GUI, I just would add "System default"
in the combo box where you can choose the keyboard layout. Then the
xorg.conf would apply, and if the user modifies that setting via
Xmodmap afterwards, that would still unchanged.
