Thank you for this very sensible point.

To add my .2 cents:

If the default binding of RET changes, please do make sure that there
is a simple and easily accessible way of toggling this, to enable
correct pasting of multi-line text in tty versions of Emacs.

To me, this side effect is the one understandable reason for RET's
current behavior (outside of "I'd have to rewire my muscle memory!").
But it's certainly not something we couldn't work around. We just
shouldn't forget to. :-)
