Thanks for the explanations and use cases. I understand that those carousels have been added over time and many pagebuilder releases, but IMHO, the two initial addons always lacked touch/swipe support. They should have been updated for a long time. As far as I know there were some (famous) scripts with mobile and responsive features, even with a proper license model. It doesn't need so many different solutions, with the right script it might be one ultimate carousel for all purposes.
