i could be wrong, but from what i understand about input methods, no, it's
not possible. when emacs starts, no input method is selected. since an
input method is always buffer-local, setting it in e.g. .emacs only sets if
for whatever buffer .emacs is executed in (if it's executed in a buffer at
all, i don't know.)

one way to more or less get what you want is to add a function setting your
desired input method to the various major mode hooks that you use.

the only alternative i see is to file a feature request...
