First of all, why do you need to use shift?

Here is my reasoning for using control, and reserving shift:

Using control for scrolling faster is better because using shift
_changes_ the current default, where as using control restricts it,
but, for those who use control already won't notice.

Using shift is better for horizontal scrolling because Mac OS Finder
did it. Okay, it's not a great reason, but, combined with above it
makes more sense overall.

True, but, the default could be better as well.
