zle_bracketed_paste isn't declared special; it's just getaparam()'d in
the guts of a random C function.

Well, it's an option.  It would result in the following interface:
to prevent $zle_bracketed_paste from being defined one will have to run
«unset zle_bracketed_paste» if zsh/zle has been loaded, or «zmodload -Fa
zsh/zle -p:zle_bracketed_paste» otherwise.

On the other hand, the approach I described in 45339 aimed to make it
possible to just do «unset zle_bracketed_paste» to unset that parameter
(and keep it unset), regardless of whether zsh/zle has or hasn't been

I find the latter option preferable.  (Assuming it can be implemented
without errors about readonly parameters cropping up at unexpected
times, as discussed upthread)

In the meantime, here's a test for -Fa.

Sorry for the delays responding to this thread; life has been getting
in the way.
