(add-hook 'foo-hook (lambda () (mode-X 1)))

only takes 7 more chars than your alternative.
Furthermore, although I know that some people are staunchly opposed
to it, I think that calling (X-mode) with no argument non-interactively
should behave exactly like turn-on-X-mode so that people can just
say (add-hook 'foo-hook 'mode-X) and so that people who already
(incorrectly) do that don't get into trouble.
