But I already use an input method.  So your suggestion means I have
to change input methods to get the "C-x 8" keys.

But maybe C-x 8 could be changed to a command which reads one key
sequence according to a different input method.  Then we can devise
an input methods with ways to input lots of different characters, and
have C-x 8 use it.

Sure.  It's a different feature; not a substitute for C-x 8.

Silence is foo!
