Bug description:
  From perspective of product management - this is currently not a
  requirement, just want to capture it for future

  we currently can't interact with puritine apps relying on the OSK

  to add this feature in where text-box selection on an xapp results in
  triggering the osk, in unity8 would be a very large/complicated
  effort. However, with a manual capability to trigger the OSK this
  could be achieved.

  For design team
  one idea was to add a show/hide button for the OSK.
  realizing this may be undesirable to add another indicator item - a follow-on idea might be to add an alpha button in the corner of the xmir-root window (the window that holds any xapp at the moment)
  this way the button presence would only be limited to the Xapp interaction.
