From the nage perspective I think this is all most illustratable in kokyudosa. After that the kokyunage's seem pretty good ways to catch the idea. After all, what does "kokyu" mean again?
At least according to Koichi Tohei Sensei, use of "kokyunage" is meant more to rhythm or timing.
breathing is rhythmic and that ("rhythm") is the sense you should be interpreting the name.
kokyudosa is another case where I think people are being misled by literally interpreting the name.
