comment Is there a name for this sort of ambiguity with respect to the rhythm of a piece, and/or is this a recognized technique in composition?

comment How to dramatically change the feeling of a song while keeping the melody largely the same?
76 Trombones from The Music Man does this. Also several of the middle variations from Händel's chaconne in G major (HWV435).

Technically you should say 12-equal temperament, since in e.g. in 19-ET they are 1 step apart (except B#=Cb and E#=Fb).
