This is a self-answer and pretty limited. If anyone wants to fill it out with more detail I'll happily accept a different answer.

Fair enough -- thought I'd give you the credit since you got me on the right track, but if you don't mind then I'll self-answer instead.

(Forgot: any equivalent for Greek? Wikipedia redirects δρόμοι to the makam page, which is an answer of a sort I suppose.)

Well, they didn't directly help (lots of sociological context in the links, but not much technical information). But it seems what I was looking for is makam theory. If you update your answer to link it I'll accept it.

I'm aware this is pretty open-ended. Suggestions for narrowing it down (or edits) gratefully received.
