They still haven't been standardized as mouse-4/mouse-5, that is a
common kludge for programs that do not have proper Z-Axis handling.

I think it would be better if the events were mouse-wheel-up and
mouse-wheel-down. Then if consistency is desired, someone will be
motivated to write Z-Axis support for X.

I do agree that two seperate events would be easier for the end-user
to use than the current single mouse-wheel event.
