Sorry, I don't understand what you are proposing concretely.  When
xcompose is not available, what does Emacs see if you press, e.g.,
AltGr " e?  (You can use "C-h l" to find the answer.)  Does it at all
know that you pressed AltGr and not the left Alt (i.e. Meta) key?

And in any case, how is the above different from Emacs input methods?
There, too, a combination of keys produces a character that is not on
the keyboard.
