I haven't tested your code, but it sounds like it's very useful.  Two nitpicks:

*  I think it would be better for this new code to be in
viper-in-more-modes or in Viper itself, not in Vimpulse.  Ideally
Viper.  In fact, I think it would be best if all of
viper-in-more-modes and vimpulse were merged into upstream Viper.  :)

*  May I suggest that CTRL-O should also go back, and maybe CTRL-]
should do the same thing as the Enter key does.  Both of these changes
would make your code work more like Vim's help system works.

One question out of curiosity:  The changeset description explains
that "Visual mode exits to Emacs state in [Info] buffers."  I haven't
tested your code, but I can't figure out:  why is this?  :)
