Ok, I think the subtle difference is that I'm applying Nikyo at the same time as Sankyo.
No, you're applying sankyo only.
You are in no way applying nickyo. Twisting the hand/wrist towards uke while horizontal isn't really nickyo, here it's just part of sankyo.

The term "joint lock" is a misnomer. It should be "body lock." The emphasis isn't the joint, it's the entire body.
Actually the term 'body lock' is already taken. What you are doing is sankyo, no need to call it a joint lock if you don't want to.

I liked the pictures, but you really really need to post a series with your hands doing the job too.
