Hmm, the answer seems to be that the changes you proposed allow to
turn the IMM on and off at will.  E.g., the above setup turns IMM on
when Evil enters the "insert" mode.  However, Emacs is always in the
"insert" mode, so I wonder why and under what circumstances would an
Emacs user want to turn IMM off?  Perhaps that should happen
automatically in buffers where character keys do not insert
themselves, but are bound to commands, like Dired buffers and buffers
in view-mode and its derivatives?
