I think these functions should be named

This code doesn't demonstrate the need for \bookOutputNameRevert; the same
thing would happen if the \bookOutputNameRevert were omitted, as far as I
can tell.

It would seem to me (this is a relatively poorly informed opinion) that
setting them to the initial values at the *start* of a book block would be a
more sane way to do it that to reset them at the end of a book block.  Or is
there something I'm missing?
