Every tabbed browser I know of, does the middle click thing (IE, Opera, Firefox, Safari, Chrome at the very least). For the side buttons, I have mine mapped to up/down arrow. Granted, they don't see that much use, but it isn't annoying, and it's more useful than having them set to nothing. The application-switch-button on the top has been remappped to Enter.

I think this is why people get so massively irritated by these restrictions.
When a customer gets turned away from a web based shop, it is usually not perceived by the customer as a sale rejected due to some import/export restriction - instead, the people impacted by these restrictions feel as though they've entered the store, chosen a product, produced their credit card in order to pay - just to find themselves being kicked out of the store due to their nationality.

That's the most apt description I've ever heard. They can cite however many distribution rights they want, but it still seems like completely arbitrary discrimination.
