I always want to close the score using the mid mouse button (clicking the wheel) like in browser. It is common UX element, so it could be useful for users.

I am not so sure about this. The X on the tab makes it very easy to close a score. I personally do not associate a middle mouse button click with closing the document that I am working on, so I would have found this irritating and confusing.

Please no!

Middle-click is “paste” under Unix/X11.

One common webbrowser-ish thing, though, is that middle-click on the tab, e.g. where I marked with a red ✘ in the attached image, closes the tab. I’d not be averse to that.

of course, anything else doesn't make sense at all.
Up to now I never noticed that in IE11 indeed a middle click closes the tab

I second this and this is used a lot of softwares. Visual Studio, for example.
