But I don't want to extend the paste backward!

Note that I have the zstyle above just to make the paste correct in
the following case:

# Helper/example paste-init for exposing a word prefix inside PASTED.
# Useful with url-quote-magic if you have http://... on the line and
# are pasting additional text on the end of the URL.
# Usage:
#       zstyle :bracketed-paste-magic paste-init backward-extend-paste

But affected the highlight is not expected.
