I'd be surprised if there were.  It's a pretty recent move in the
computer world.
You could probably map some philosophical movements onto these semantics:
the philosophers that take the view that your actions define `who you are'
would be operationalists, and the ones that take a `you are what you've
accomplished' might be denotationalists, but it would be stretching the
meaning.  (But I bet you'd get published in Social Text!)
