Exactly. Though it's usually more customary to let the BACKGROUND MOVE and the subject and the camera stay still, it would be possible to do it the other way around as well.

It's that exactly what a equatorial mount does for sky photography?  Or keeping with the horses theme, a slit-scan camera like used for racing photo-finish?

With shorter exposures, this is also the same as dragging the shutter and panning.  It would be nice to see the subject while doing this -- one advantage ascribed to the traditional rangefinder.
