<mouse-4> (translated from <down-mouse-4> <down-mouse-4> <mouse-4>) at that 
spot runs the command mwheel-scroll
  which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `mwheel.el'.
It is bound to <mouse-5>, <S-mouse-5>, <C-mouse-5>, <mouse-4>, <S-mouse-4>, 
(mwheel-scroll EVENT)

Scroll up or down according to the EVENT.
This should only be bound to mouse buttons 4 and 5.

I don't think that the purportive win in clarity offsets the
divergence from the actually used event names.  I think that we stand
no chance of winning any user to Emacs who would be at a loss about
what to think about mouse-1, mouse-2, mouse-3.
