They all correspond exactly to operations that can be performed on the focus when making a perspective projection using 3D graphics software.

These camera moves remind me of the kinds of motion possible for a ship or an airplane, which I read about a long time ago. I remember pitching and yawing but I've forgotten the names of the others.
