I've been reading this conversation with interest. I tried different shells with xterm versus st.

I confirm that this is true on my computer: for the shells fish, bash, ksh, and mksh, in xterm, the Delete key works; whereas in st it doesn't work without tput smkx.

However, with zsh in st, the Delete key works immediately.
