Yes, but it can affect more than the camera.  You can use a plain camera and
apply those types of transforms to objects or even patterns.   This is sort of
how some pigment patterns are generated, and it's also very much like
uv-mapping, parametrics, Bezier patches, etc.

One of our vectors might not be "x", but "East" as we travel around a globe.

You have your normal x, y, and z as a starting point - the standard orthogonal
unit vectors - but then traveling in the new directions does not result in
travel along the cardinal axes, or even straight lines, because you're following
the path of a different vector or parametric function.

Yes, that's a good thing to do - the more you understand the basics, the less
mysterious the more complicated stuff seems to be.
