For me, it looks like they have different number of arguments:

  1+1 -- \set A.B = #C
  1   -- \unset A.B
  2+1 -- \override A.B #C = #D
  2   -- \revert A.B #C

It is easier to program if the degeneracy of names (i.e. commands with 
different number and/or type of arguments) is as low as possible.

Grammatically, `overrideĀ“ and `revertĀ“ may not be best words, since actually the
second argument is overridden or reverted.
