I use it on a consistant basis, every day.. ebay is the big one I can think
of. I middle-click a link because I want to read it now. And because when
I'm done, I want to just close it, not press back and RE-RENDER the page I
was previously at.

There will need to be a preference then for how middle-click behaves.
