I see.  (Also, I forgot that push-input is implemented via
push-line-or-edit, not the other way around.)

Then how about:

execute-command() {
  local finish="zle .reset-prompt"
  case $CONTEXT in
  (cont) finish="zle .push-line-or-edit"
    print -S "${${(q-)@}}"
    eval "${(q-)@}"
  (*) return 75
  eval "$finish"

As I mentioned, by turning this into a generic "execute-command"
you've made it the responsibility of the caller to pass the right
thing.  The question then is how to write the examples.

Instead of

  setopt autopushd pushdminus pushdsilent
  cd-backward() { execute-command -- 'pushd -1' }

It should be similar to

  cd-backward() {
    setopt localoptions autopushd pushdminus pushdsilent
    execute-command -- pushd -1

(I removed the quotes around «pushd -1» to correspond to my use of
${(q-)@} above.)
