That is actually exactly what the define-minor-mode code used to do,
before Stefan started changing it.  (Stefan kept the eval-after-load,
but made it do different things).

However, using eval-after-load has many negative side effects, as I
pointed out before.

If one wants to have define-minor-mode enable a minor mode
automatically if :init-value is non-nil, then I believe that the best
way to do that would be to make define-minor-mode support alternative
:initialize functions like custom-initialize-set by changing the order
in which define-minor-mode defines things.  (As I suggested earlier.)
