Well, if you consider that konsole tabbar supports using mouse wheel to switch
active tab and some users do like that feature/convenience and use it (I
don't), then I don't think you would be that optimistic about the low
probability of middle clicking by accident.

If a user accidentally messes up the terminal by running some stupid command,
then it is his/her fault. But if he/she accidentally close the tab and loses
important thing due to middle clicking feature, I guess he/she will blame the
terminal emulator and come here with anger and screaming, just like those users
in https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=335453 .

And to be honest, I don't like the "close tab" action in context menu either,
with similar consideration.
