AFAIK no. But you can set INPUTRC to a default value, as I do in
/etc/environment which is sourced from /etc/defaults/dot.bashrc which is
sourced from /etc/profile.
Just for reference my /etc/environment (slightly shortened):
export EXINIT="set showmode autoindent ruler noerrorbells"
export PS1='(\u@\h) \w\$'
export VERSION_CONTROL numbered

Yes. When we are at it, I strongly suggest to make all relevant
applications 8-bit-clean, as already suggested by Lars.
