Firstly, just because Microsoft has something standard in their
applications, it should be added to Emacs? There might be a lot of
windows users but only a very small proportion use Emacs.

Secondly, if you stretch any argument to an extreme extent, it will
fail. Try your arguments and you will see none of them holds water.

The point is: C-x C-= is comparable to C-Mouse4/5 and it gives the user
a more precise control.
