So there are a few options for middle mouse:

a. it does not exist since we have 2 button mouse
b. it does, or is emulated and implies 'jump to here'
c. it does, or is emulated and implies 'post pop-up to request value'
d. it does, or is emulated and implies 'MIDI CC Register'

That probably needs to be voted on to see what is generally implemented. 
It might also make sense to post on LAU and see what people generally
anticipate, as ever there can be disconnects between users and developers.

Out of interest, how many apps respect mouse buttons 4 and buttons 5 for 
scroll up/down? This is the middle-mouse-wheel, it should at least be part of 
the proposal, then perhaps also with 'Control', and 'Shift'?
