Well, I disagree (respectfully, of course). I find this action very
natural and it avoids the need to either wait or to reach for the
keyboard. (you do need to use a different finger for each mouse button!)

The only way to really assess this is for some people to try it and report

If you have a disability this method might be a problem.
However, implementing this doesn't prevent a less-able user from doing D&D
the normal way or for other methods of D&D to be implemented in addition
to this.
