Yes, if you're in visual mode the operation causes exit from visual mode
and that's in general defined as unselecting in vi I think.  Would you
want it to stay in visual mode or exit visual mode but retain the
selection (which seems a bit odd to me but I'm not a vi user)?

Yes.  Is there a standard vi key stroke that should be used for these?
