As a local fix, wouldn't simply binding the start code with each prefix
serve your purposes?
Didn't we discuss this issue a few months ago - have you perhaps got a
message reference? I haven't had the impression that it is bothering a
lot of people. And even without bracketed-paste, a prefix followed by a
paste is likely to have had undesirable results.

ZLE-specific stuff should ideally not leak into the base shell options.
Or we're you actually hoping to stimulate thoughts on other solutions:
perhaps a callback could be added like zle-keymap-select so you could
change the cursor shape or prompt after a prefix.
