Hmm. Well, maybe so. On the other hand, the canonical events happened a very long time ago in relation to the events of the Dìqiú Suite, and most of the characters in the latter are new, so not recognizing the names is not necessarily a source problem. Beyond that, I'm not sure I agree that complete familiarity with the source material is required, if only because I don't have that either; I did the television equivalent of skimming about 67% of The Legend of Korra Book 2, because it had made an enemy of me by round about the fifth episode. At this point Korra's as prominent as she is in UF despite her origins rather than because of them, which is, perhaps, some indication of her general awesomeness, that she's so thoroughly established herself in my creative consciousness despite coming from a show that makes me want to punch someone. :)

Anyway, as you note, the intent is generally to set things up so that familiarity with the sources adds to the experience rather than unfamiliarity detracting; but I'm willing to accept the possibility that I've fucked it up this time. That is, alas, life sometimes. :(
