D+MMB for zooming works great, but D+RMB (rotate view) and D+LMB (pan view) work in Object Mode but not in Edit Mode, where they get superseded by the contextual menu and regular selecting respectively (the original actions those mouse actions do without holding the D key). I don't like to use modifiers on my pinky or the MMB for navigation. And I'm trying to make navigation work like Softimage's.

Looks like Right mouse press have higher priority than any modifier key. So the only thing i can reccomend (and i use it): MMB press to orbit, MMB scroll to zoom, RMB to pan, W (and 4th mb, and menu button) for context menu.

Or just change contextmenu to W and tune as you wish.

But yes, it is a question for developers, why D+RMB counts like RMB+D
