So they _can_ bind them.

So it's not even a design decision, but the only possibility?
The Emacs way is the only way? ;-)

Try and see.  In Emacs we can put such things under the control of the
individual user.  It should be possible to use both approaches, with a user
option deciding.  Once implemented it should be easy enough to conditionally
ignore the timeout and get the current behavior.

I know nothing about whether it is exposed, but a quick google shows it might
be.  I see, for example, references to functions GetDoubleClickTime and
SetDoubleClickTime.  (Hm, the Emacs name is also `double-click-time'...)
