Yes, but it works right just because
        (ucs-unify-8859 'encode-only)
is explicitly called after loading ucs-tables.el.

That's what I didn't know.  When I see the previous code of
define-minor-mode, I thought that it's the responsibility of
define-minor-mode to synchronize the Emacs's status with
:init-value.  So, it appears to me that your change just
gives it up.

If it's the programmer's responsibility, it is cleaner that
we have this line:
        (ucs-unify-8859 'encode-only)
just after (define-minor-mode unify-8859-on-encoding-mode
...) in ucs-tables.el than having it in loadup.el.

Because it doesn't solve the original problem, i.e.,
eval-after-load doesn't work at bootstrapping time.
