You are indeed fortunate. "Set" and "unset" are of course techie jargon
that you ought to avoid or at least explain. In earlier times it was
more difficult, as they were called set and reset. That terminology is
still used when talking about RS flip-flops, which are hardware devices.

Most audiences don't need the jargon. If yours does, though, then keep
set and unset and don't change them.
