Why not "Revert to Defaults"?  That seems to be the canonical phrase.

My personal opinion is that the "Set for Current Session" and "Reset
to Current" buttons are superfluous.  Most other programs don't
provide a separate "set but don't save" command, and it's
unneccessary.  It took me a while to realize what all those Customize
buttons were supposed to do, and it would probably be worse for

If we eliminate "Set for Current Session" and "Reset to Current", the
interface would be much cleaner:

 [Cancel Changes] [Save Changes]
 [Reset to Defaults]    [Finish]
