Ah, sorry, I did mean button 3.

I think the Super+Scrollwheel is okay (and more discovarable), but maybe

I agree -- I think Super+Scrollwheel is definitely very useful, and since
the operation is continuous, it's much easier for a user to figure out how
it happened and how to use it. (In fact, Control-Scrollwheel works the same
way on Mac OS.)

I can't say the same for Super+MiddleClick, though. Regardless of whether
there is an additional escape message overlay (which I think would be a good
idea), it seems pretty clear to me that Super+MiddleClick should be disabled
by default.
