Thanks for the suggestions.

I used fundamental-mode, always. It turns out that you can't add hooks to
that mode, so I changed my default mode to text-mode, and then added this

(add-hook 'text-mode-hook (lambda () (interactive) (highlight-80+-mode 1)))

The define-globalized-minor-mode also looks interesting, I'll try that out.

I have now worked a couple of days in text-mode instead of fundamental-mode,
and I can't detect any difference at all (which is good for what I want). Is
there a difference other than the hook stuff?
Yes. Please refer to Emacs info: 29.7 Text Mode.

   In Text mode, only blank lines and page delimiters separate
paragraphs.  As a result, paragraphs can be indented, and adaptive
filling determines what indentation to use when filling a paragraph.
*Note Adaptive Fill::.

   Text mode defines <TAB> to run `indent-relative' (*note
Indentation::), so that you can conveniently indent a line like the
previous line.

   Text mode turns off the features concerned with comments except when
you explicitly invoke them.
