If you have Compose in Emacs, it works in Emacs. If you have Compose
in XKB, it works across your whole desktop.

Not everyone is using X.

I do tend to agree that it would often be better to implement input methods at the OS level, but have you (for example) seen .keymap files on MacOS? They're not even officially documented any more (the page in the old documentation is marked so it won't be web indexed!) Apple prefers that people not use them, and there are significant limitations to the functionality. Sometimes doing this sort of thing in Emacs has advantages.
