Good point.  It probably deserves to be moved elsewhere.

Well, that depends on your definition of "terminal" and Emacs uses
different such definitions at different places.  In the sense of
"terminal" used in `frame-terminal' (for instance), then they do
belong there, but in the sense of $TERM they don't.  So I don't think
that's a strong argument to move them out of there.

OTOH I do think it would be worthwhile to byte-compile them (after all,
they hold a sizable amount of code nowadays), and currently files in
lisp/term aren't byte-compiled.  Maybe we should byte-compile the
lisp/term files (IIRC elc files get loaded more efficiently because they
do not go through load-with-code-conversion, so even if they don't
contain much code, it's worthwhile).
