I filed an online request to Mitsubishi, pointing out that Chargepoint seems to not respond well to the MiEV pause, and I asked for a possible update so that charging would return to 3kW even after the pause on shared Chargepoint stations. Below is Mitsubishi's response, which (except for the first sentence or two) seems like a pre-packaged response.

Dear Kevin Murray:
Thank you for providing Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (“MMNA”) the opportunity to review and address the concerns regarding your 2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV , VIN: JA3215H13CU0_XXXXX. Unfortunately, we are unable to produce a software update as requested in your email.
As stated in the Owner’s Manual:
Section 1 page 19:
Repeatedly performing only quick charging (if so equipped) can reduce the battery capacity. Regular charging is recommended unless quick charging is necessary.
To help maintain the capacity of the main drive lithium-ion battery, the following is recommended.
Do not repeat charging when the main drive lithium-ion battery is at or near the full charge.
It is recommended that you perform regular charging from 2 bars or less on the energy level gauge to full at least every three months. This lets the energy level gauge adjust to decreases in battery capacity and correctly show the remaining energy in the main drive lithium-ion battery.
Section 1 page 40:
Charging is designed to stop when the main drive lithium-ion battery capacity reaches 80%.
Section 1 page 37:
Charging may stop before full charge. This is a control for efficient charge and not a malfunction.
