Instead of adding a new variable right away we should consider what's
the current state of affairs. I guess that the original intent of
evil-default-cursor was to provide a base and apply further
customizations (for the cases they are defined) onto it.

IMHO, what is needed is a variable that takes complete responsibility of
cursor setting. Such variable would contain a function. Default value
would be something like evil-refresh-cursor.

Sounds good?
