Thanks for your report.

The conflict you point at is unfortunate. Nevertheless, removing those
shortcuts is not an option. Especially Ctrl+Shift+u is a well
established method on Linux to type characters which are not available
via the keyboard layout you are using:

Ctrl+Shift+e is newer, but probably used and appreciated by many users.

Your bug makes me think of this IBus issue:

That proved to be an Ubuntu specific bug which has been fixed in groovy
but not (yet) in focal. Fixing it in focal would be a way to improve the
situation. If you want that to happen, please file an ibus bug as I
suggested in my latest comment at that issue.

I think you make a too big deal of the fact that ibus-setup is not
searchable in Ubuntu. It's not an Ubuntu specific thing, btw, but it's
the same for GNOME irrespective of distro:

Alt+F2 followed by ibus-setup is not "extremely difficult". But indeed,
you need be aware of the possibility to change it that way.

  Enhancement: Remove default Emoji shortcuts

Status in ibus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Current Situation

  Per default ibus preferences are hidden in Ubuntu
  (I would say it's very difficult to reach ibus feature)

  ibus has two default shortcuts, apparently for Emoji-something: 
     - Ctrl+shift+e 
     - Ctrl+shift+u

  These shortcuts can prevent shortcuts from other applications being used (one 
example: VSCode's "show files"

  Because of (1) it's extremely difficult to change these shortcuts, if they 
cause any problems - Especially because of (2.3).

  The user has no way of knowing that ibus introduced these shortcuts (because 
they would only use Settings->Region & Language, which does not show any 
shortcut options)

  I guess the Emoji shortcuts ( (2) ) have no benefit for a normal user. Reason 
(guess): The normal user would not understand what to do after pressing the 

  Remove shortcuts as a default setting

  - Why is this bug not filed in
    -> Because in ibus as standalone, where the user has a direction connection 
to it, it might make sense to keep the shortcuts. For the moment I would say 
this is a Ubuntu related issue, as ubuntu is hiding the dialog. (... why is the 
dialog gui even installed, if we don't was to show it? ...)
