What about deleting 9 lines? Does deletion work in terms of visual or
logical lines in vim?

In Emacs, as far as I can tell, visual line movement only affects
movement, killing still works by logical lines.

That may mean you’d need relative visual line numbers when you are
going to press a movement (<up>/<down>/C-n/C-p) key, and relative
logical line numbers when you are going to press a kill-line key
(<C-S-backspace> or C-k).
