OK.  And C-x 8 RET works the same as ESC x ucs-i TAB RET.  But I
guess your point is that the former is not an easy key sequence to
type.  (The latter is easy, but long.)  In that case, I'd suggest
binding it to something simpler.

Just defalias it yourself: (defalias 'ucs-insert 'insert-char).

+1 for that.
