They're *mostly* to do with the colour encoding scheme.  Before we had
colour, the standards had different names (CCIR, EIAJ, etc.), and they
specified scanning rates.  Then when colour was *added*, we got a new
set of standards that expanded on that.

The converse applies:  They're also part of the colour decoding scheme.
But, again, that doesn't really apply for webcamming.
