Emacs is not, despite appearances, an operating system. We shouldn't
reinvent every wheel. Centralizing input method infrastructure is very
useful because it provides consistency across an entire environment.

If you want a pure-Emacs implementation of the compose concept, you can
load iso-transl and either use C-x 8 or bind Multi_key to
iso-transl-ctl-x-8-map. It's no substitute for proper IME integration.
