I believe you can key the position of the ortho cameras. View > Select Camera and key the channels you need.

wrong, the width is keyable, though not though the simple "s" trick. you go to camerashape and in orthographic section you set a key for the width (right click and set key). it works well

and if you dont change the up axis of cam too much, you can even make the cam move in orthographic - but easier to switch off orthographic, move camera, set keys for cam, and switch back on orthographic, and you see it in orthographic. but yucc, eyes dont like orthographic too well - just looks wrong
