Well aware of vi-state-hooks behavior. I was just giving you a tidbit to send you in potentially a workable direction. :)

You could try using a buffer-local variable to test if you've applied your change, or wait for a better solution.  I don't see a really clean way to hook into impulse visual mode deactivation without adding an additional hook to impulse.  You could maybe use deactivate-mark-hook, and check if vimpulse-visual-mode is true, but you'd have to be sure that your function came before vimpulse-visual-deactivate-hook in the hook.
