I don't think you need it for ibus.el to work.
ibus is designed to be plug-in based and multi-lingual.
You can type all sorts of languages in one text,
switching languages.  Then, what locale should you use?

In fact, a month ago (before this large-scale upgrade
of ibus), I was able to type Korean and Japanese in
a single buffer on emacs through ibus.el .
I don't set LC_TYPE and I set LANG=C.

I downloaded it from snapshots.debian.org, but I couldn't install it
because of a dependency problem.  The installer (dpkg -i) says 
it breaks the ibus package (or some of the ibus-related packages).
