    That's what a some minor modes already do, for example
    `turn-on-eldoc-mode', `turn-on-follow-mode', or
    `turn-on-gnus-dired-mode'.  For some of them there's also a turn-off

    Maybe that's a good convention.  If so, then probably things like
    `define-minor-mode' should generate those functions automatically.

This approach defines functions in a profligate way.
It would be much better to do something simpler and more elegant.
