What do these openings have in common?

What links the following openings together?
Benko's Opening (1.g3)
Owen's Defence (1.e4 b6)
French Defence (1.e4 e6)
Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (1.d4 d5 2.e4)
Catalan Opening (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3)

As I'm feeling a little generous, the first correct answer (in the comments section, with a name attached) will win a years membership of the Correspondence Chess League of Australia.
