It's very difficult because there's no way to identify that
'[' is a prefix key.   For instance, we have this kind of
rule in "latin-1-postfix" input method.

 ("A`" ?À)
 ("A'" ?Á)
 ("A^" ?Â)
 ("A~" ?Ã)

But, we don't want to treat `A' as a prefix key.

We may be able to add a new argument PREFIX-CHARS to
quail-define-package, and modify quail-help to check it and
generate separate keyboard tables.  It may require a gross
change in quail-help.  Do you want to work on implementing

No.  My question is "do you want that pressing CAPS sends
Emacs an independent event that can be treated as a prefix
event as the same way as the current `['?".

Or, do you want that pressing CAPS and some other key KEY at
the same time sends Emacs an event and that event is handled
by quail to insert the same character as what '[' followed
by KEY inserts?
