That's true, but the sort of `special input method' Kai is talking about
is, I think, intended to make C-x 8 _easier_ to remember, by adding
multiple redundant ways of getting the same character (something which
you don't want to do with a usual input method, because it steals too
many bindings that would normally be used for self-insertion).

E.g., é might be typable using both C-x 8 ' e and C-x 8 e '
That way, users won't have to remember whether C-x 8 requires accents
to be a prefix or a suffix.
