The GNOME developers believe otherwise, and unless someone presents some
hard data, it's just two groups of people shouting at each other.

It doesn't require it. You already discovered how to do it without the
keyboard, but you complained it was too slow and disruptive. Someone
recommended a method that was faster and less disruptive, and instead of
saying 'hey, thanks', all you can do is come up with some new reason why
it doesn't qualify? That's not cool.
