File-names usually do not have publisher fields and you need the original file-names to correct your library so once you are done you can update the publisher field.
Dopedangel the problem arises in the scenario where:

1) You read metadata from the books and you don't use Regular Expressions.

In the scenario where you read directly from filename your suggestion is good.
