Ah. A new Google search got me a solution.

bind -m vi-command '"ii": vi-insertion-mode'
bind -m vi-insert '"ii": vi-movement-mode'

Or the following should work (untested here) using $HOME/.inputrc:

$if mode=vi

    set keymap vi-command
    "ii": vi-insertion-mode

    set keymap vi-insert
    "ii": vi-movement-mode
