Turning your mouse scroll up and down into 8 to 16 binds is pretty easy here are the steps to do it.
1- forget about controlling camera zoom in and out using your mouse wheel, bind those somewhere else.
2- bind mouse wheel up and mouse wheel down to any of your spells.
3- use shift, alt and ctrl combined with the mouse wheel up and down to get an additional 6 binds bringing the total to 8.
4- (for healers mostly) key bind macros that cast a different spell depending on whether your target is friendly or foe, an example of this kind of macro is
/cast [help] Renew; [harm] Shadow Word: Pain
That marcro ^ will cast shadow word pain on foes but renew on friendly's. Using this method you could bind 16 spells to your mouse wheel alone.

If you're counting friend/foe, you get up to 32. :)
8 combinations of modifiers:
2 mousewheel directions (up/down)
2 target reactions (help/harm)
8*2*2 = 32
A male character could also use it that much, too... iykwim.
I can just imagine that I'd be trying to talk on vent, which is alt and then trying to zoom out which I hold shift + wheel out.. so for me I can see this becoming very confusing and messy!! hheheh
People would hear a lot of cussing from me if I were to do that (yes, I cuss at my own characters- don't ask). Only thing I have alt bound to is vent and mumble.

I just got a G600, which has a function where you can tip the middle mouse wheel from side to side for two extra keybinds...
Does it still click down as well? I would have a lot of use out that just for binding cooldowns and stuff. With just a 3 button mouse it is a bit of a strain to get it all on the mouse and a lot of stuff still needs to be clicked. This mouse is so fricken old but I fear getting used to a different one.
I have a G500, same scroll wheel. It does. The side scroll works really well, in my opinion - it's easy to do left or right taps without accidentally scrolling. I don't do anything as crazy as what the OP is suggesting, however. I just use shift up and down for things like on use trinkets/pots and scroll left and right (and shift left/right) for focus and targetassist, etc.
