There is one more/different 'face' issue: if I paste a line and then press 
Enter (as opposed to any alphanumeric key or arrow keys) then the highlight

just guessing.

Unsurprising. The highlights are added and removed in readline's redisplay.
Once you enter newline (or any key bound to accept-line), readline returns
the line immediately without any redisplay, so the line remains as is.

Is that a regression relative to my original patch? I could have sworn I made command submission deactivate the mark and redisplay, but maybe I'm recalling incorrectly. In any case, isn't that the right thing to do?

FWIW, for debugging the kinds of issues we're discussing here, rr(1) is _incredibly_ helpful.
