I think <lang>[-<keyboard_type>][-<switch>].map is better.
While dvorak-fr looks fine because there is dvorak map already,
with -l and -r variants, but cz & cz-qwertz look more logical (IMHO)
than cz & qwertz-cz.

Is there any progress? At least the workaround eliminates problems
(for example see http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/13837)

We (Arch Linux) do this when building the kbd package:
mv data/keymaps/i386/qwertz/cz{,-qwertz}.map
mv data/keymaps/i386/olpc/es{,-olpc}.map
mv data/keymaps/i386/olpc/pt{,-olpc}.map
mv data/keymaps/i386/dvorak/no{,-dvorak}.map
mv data/keymaps/i386/fgGIod/trf{,-fgGIod}.map
