As I see it, both tarot and Lenormand have a long-standing "system" in terms of structure and interpretation, while oracles are wide-open to the creator's vision and ingenuity. Playing around with the foundation of either of the others invites being branded as an "oracle" (the "merely" is kind of implied). I find nominal "oracle" decks to be much more open-ended, which is both a blessing and a curse as far as reading with them. But they do stretch the reader's imagination and skill.
