I don't use the mouse in emacs at all, but when browsing info mouse-2 caught my eye.

Why emacs calls these mouse-1, 2 and 3? Wouldn't it be more user friendly to say
left mouse button, middle mouse button and right mouse button?

I checked what terminology Gnome uses:

"Press the right mouse button on any local folder"
