Sorry, I didn't understand that you were asking for a definition.

The distinction is: modes in which the effects of any command invoked
(other than horizontal cursor movement commands) are determined solely
by the current line that point is on and are unaffected by the current

off (actually I also want to massively de-emphasize the cursor in that
set of modes)

because in that mode, presumably, you'd be able to hit `SPC' on a square
of the board and get an "X" or "O" in that square, and several squares
are lined up horizontally on the same line in tic-tac-toe.
