There has been a thread on www-dom mailing list resulting from a request for
a standard event description for mouse wheel movements (the rolling middle
button on some mice).  The thread starts with
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-dom/2002AprJun/0019.html.

In my opinion, it would be very desirable to capture wheel movements in SVG
1.1 to provide application specific rotation, color change, zooming or other
image manipulation behavior when the viewer's default behavior for the wheel
movement is not appropriate.

It would not appear to require any enhancement of the existing MouseEvent
interface to represent mouse wheel movements, since the UIEvent.detail
attribute could be used to encode the direction and magnitude of the wheel
movement.
