I come from an Iwama background... you should see how many things we call kokyu nage.

For instance, all of the above mentioned throws
While I don't really come from an Iwama background, I have practiced in Iwama a few times, and I am pretty sure that I have heard the "Head Throw" referred to as kubinage by people in Iwama , but I could be wrong...but I also noticed that there is a whole series of Kokyu nage techniques that vary widely. I believe that Inagaki Sensei likes to cover them all together as a single unit...or at least he was doing it that way one of the times I stayed there.
