I disagree that they mislead.  What is misleading in
inhibit-modification-hooks? its name says exactkly what it does.

"Hook" is not a reserved word in variable names; it makes no sense to
avoid calling a variable that inhibits some hooks by a name that
doesn't mention "hooks".

You are trying to impose unnecessary burden on variable names.
