I also find the forward-/backward- prefixes inappropriate in this
case; to me they indicate movement in the current buffer or some
other "closed context".

In contrast, the next-/previous- doesn't necessarily indicate any
specific sequence of the visited items (navigating in a list of
places to visit).
