IMO a third one could be considered as a replacement for term.el (never
seen terminal.el).   But only if it's actively maintained.

term.el is not very maintainable, some bugs are quite hard to fix.

Also nterm.el seems to be trying to emulate vt100.  Nowadays all
terminal emulators try to emulate xterm, which is the de facto standard...
