For some reason, in my region where I grew up, it was always accepted to throw all those types of ball violations under the one "traveling" umbrella. Carry, palming, travel, it's a violation either way, so most people in my area just call it a travel regardless. It's interesting because there have been moments in street games where an opponent will vehemently deny they traveled but will concede "I may have carried, but I didn't travel." Sometimes I feel like I'm better off just calling a "violation".
