Yes.  I chose the current names for symmetery with
assoc_list.map_{keys,values}_only/3, but I now think the names you
suggest are better.

(For the map operation there is map_values/3 (where the closure takes
both the key and the value) and map_values_only/3 (where the closure
take just the value) -- this distinction doesn't need to be made for foldl
since if you want to fold over both the key and the value you can just
you list.foldl.)

I'll make this change shortly.
