Improve Control of Scatterplot 3D Rotation - Keep Charts 'Right Side Up' by Locking the Z Axis

Most people who manipulate 3D scatterplots do not want to rotate about the Z axis, and they end up struggling to keep it 'right side up' after a few rotations.  Make the mouse movement work like the 'Move and Rotate' behavior in the animated gif below.

Here is an add-in that provide the functionality in the animation above:

Proposed

Provide an option to lock the z axis, enable it by default.  When enabled, horizontal movement of the mouse rotates the chart about the y axis, no matter where the user initially clicked on the chart. Vertical movement rotates the chart about the x axis.
