Ah, of course, I was confused by the case of M-TAB and M-C-i.
They are the same for Emacs but window managers steal one of them.

Maybe then `C-q M-RET'?

Isn't `C-q M-RET #x<hex>+ RET' still easy to type?

Or even `C-q M-: #x<hex>+ RET'?  This is very similar to eval-expression
such as `C-u M-: #x<hex>+ RET' with only one difference that the latter
inserts it as a number and the former will insert it as a character.
