Horizontal scroll in mixconsole

In Nuendo 13 it’s now possible to scroll horizontally with two fingers (mac, trackpad) or mousewheel, but only if the pointer is in the fader area. That’s much better as in prior versions, horizontal scroll with two fingers/mousewheel was only possible if the pointer was on the scroll bar.

What’s the reason for that limitation? In my opinion it should be possible to scroll horizontally in every area of mixconsole.
