AFAICT your suggestion would not swap RET/C-j depending on e-i-m.

For a setting which is mostly global by nature (it reflects on the
user's general preference), I'm not worried and generally prefer this
over using define-globalized-minor-mode which is a fine hack, but
a hack nevertheless.

I'm worried about the possible consequences: e-i-m has been around for
a little while now and we're somewhat familiar with its problems.
Your approach might solve some problems (tho I haven't seen a clear
statement of what those problems are, in terms of *behavior*), but will
inevitably come with its own set of consequences.
