It's quite different for me. I may listen to one book only to find it
wasn't the right length for a trip. The next time I take a trip may be
some time later, and I wish to start the book again. I do this pretty
regularly, and I don't want resume points littering my collection, while
I'd still like them for podcasts.

I think the key is that with my solution, the option is there (while
maintaining less presence in the menus of confusing options, and less
automation which can be argued as a positive or negative depending on
your views) to have it handle things either way, while with your case
it's more or less forced.
