The considerations you present are not special to the proposed
horizontal scrolling using a mouse wheel, they are valid for any
scrolling.  IOW, this is how scrolling behaved in Emacs since about
forever.  And I think it's not a good idea to have some methods of
scrolling behave differently from others.  So I could agree to having
a user option to temporarily disable auto-hscroll-mode during
scrolling, but the default behavior should be what we have now, and
the option should affect all methods of scrolling alike.
