I think C-x 8 is usefull if your keyboard allows you to type most of the
characters you need, but not all. For instance, with a French keyboard
you can type 'à' but not 'á' and this is not worth using an input-method
in emacs.

Well, we don't use 'á' in French, but I sometimes really use C-x 8 to
enter a NBSP or a 'þ' in a smiley when I don't have a Compose Key.
