Because they work. This was a very elegant hack which solved two 
problems: Bringing in the events at all, and making use of them 
immediately (since as up/down array all the editors know what to do with 
it). It'll be quite a bit more work to put the plumbing into place which 
delivers scroll events throughout all the UI environments that are in 
use. Doable, but work nonetheless.
