Setting two different layouts and switching them with xorg conf file doesn't work but works fine with setxkbmap.
Works fine:
`setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout "us,us" -variant "dvorak," -option "grp:alt_shift_toggle" `

Doesn't work:
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "system-keyboard"
MatchIsKeyboard "on"
Option "XkbLayout" "us,us"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbVariant" "dvorak,"
Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp,grp:alt_shift_toggle,caps:escape"

Note: terminate: works fine and caps has been mapped to esc successfully.

Relevant xorg log
[ 7036.926] (**) Option "xkb_model" "pc105"
[ 7036.926] (**) Option "xkb_layout" "dvorak,us"
[ 7036.926] (**) Option "xkb_variant" "dvorak,"
[ 7036.926] (**) Option "xkb_options" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp,grp:alt_shift_toggle,caps:escape"
