Sorry, I don't understand the reasons for the complication.  The "in
char mode" part was already on the table when we discussed this
previously.  Presumably, there's a function in term-mode which
switches to and from char mode, and that function should turn
bracketed paste mode on or off, accordingly.  Is that right?

For the "term buffer is active" part, do you mean re-enable the
bracketed paste mode when the user switches to another buffer?  If so,
won't it be easier, simpler, and more reliable to do that in a
post-command-hook?

Or maybe it's easier to arrange for xterm-paste to realize the current
buffer is in term char mode, and do the "normal" paste part?  Is that
possible?
