There is

Zrapid  ( cleance to move anywhere on the table)
Zclearance  (clearance to move inside of the current operation)
Ztop  ( Top of material)
Z0  ( Z point of origin 0.000)
Zstep (Zstep depth)
Zdepth ( final depth to an operation)

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Note that Clearance is not an absolute value, but is a distance measure. One example, when doing a multi-pass pocket it moves up the clearance distance above a cut for the rapid move back to the start for the next pass. Also on the start of a cut it moves down from the rapid height to the clearance distance above the Ztop of material.

All the other values are absolute values based on the current coordinate system.

Clearance AND step are incremental moves and the rest are absolute.
