I don't think "The Khan" really works as a name for the trope. I mean, almost every single The X trope we have is a character trope. The Khan is a Camera Trick. Also, as mentioned in The Khan Discussion, "It's kind of odd that this trick should be named after that moment because in the film, the camera doesn't spin or pull away and Kirk isn't actually looking at the camera." If we can't come up with a better name, perhaps Khan Shot would work (although it still has the problem of not actually being used in the moment it's named after).
