MouseScroll is a bad name too, for mice with multiple scrollwheels, not all 
of them generally scroll, nor is there always an inherent relationship 
between wheels and scrolling, just a common one.  A less device specific 
name would lose the mouse not the wheel, so something like jogwheel I guess, 
but such a name would be silly

Like Ian and Maciej, I say mousewheel is the only logical option right now.
