Since every Lisp symbol can at the same time be a variable and a
function, it would have been nice if every variable my_favorite_symbol
with a :set function, would have an associated function
my_favorite_symbol and if that function behaved in exactly the same
way as minor mode functions for variables of boolean type and if, for
non-boolean type variables, (my_favorite_symbol value) would be
equivalent with setting the variable my_favorite_symbol to VALUE
through customize:

:set #'funcall

But I guess it is much too late to enforce anything like this, even if
it were deemed desirable.
