Since that operation, to my knowledge, has no equivalent in vi, I think we can
make this up as we go. To me it would be more "consistent" to stay in visual
mode. But I'm hardly a vi expert either so it may be transgressing something
I'm utterly unaware of.
I'd like to hear others chime in.

I don't think there is one. So I'd suggest just keeping Wing's Ctrl-/ and
Ctrl-? when in vi mode.
