Isn't that backward-incompatible change in behavior?

FWIW, I use S-down-mouse-1 quite a lot, especially when testing
various display-related bug reports and questions.  Replacing it with
super, for which I have no key on my keyboard, would need both more
customizations and re-teaching my muscle memory.  All that just to
provide some kind of "consistency"?  I'm not sure it's a good enough
reason for changing such a veteran behavior.
