I do understand that you want to "group" those actions under OperateAction but what distinguishes OperateAction from an InteractAction (definition would need to be generalized to include devices) or an UpdateAction? IMHO, the definition of UpdateAction would fit quite well for those new actions:

   The act of managing by changing/editing the state of the object.
