I've never been a fan of gestures, double taps, etc. as shortcuts. Why the secret menu for using something? Is this an In-N-Out? I know its probably in the manual, but I still think its silly that I need to memorize a list of movements and tap sequences to quickly perform a basic function.

Nonetheless, it is nice that you can access the seat heaters quickly. I wonder if there is an analogous secret motion to turn the wheel heater on?

Not exactly a secret, stated directly in the manual:
"OR: to switch the seat heating on or off, touch the touch sliders under the Info-tainment system on the driver or front passenger side with two fingers."

The very next sentence: "I know its probably in the manual, but I still think its silly that I need to memorize a list of movements and tap sequences to quickly perform a basic function".

Although I'm using a Mac Magic Trackpad 2 as I type this, and am fairly adept at most of its variables, I too am not enamored with two finger tapping on the slider as it hasn't worked reliably for me. So I too now most often go with voice control, which is quite good.
Just use voice control

You can also customize the widgets on the home screen. Try the different sized climate widgets - one of them has the two seat-heater buttons as the first page on the widget.

But then I'd have to turn the music down. ONE MUST NEVER DO THAT.
My wife and I could be having a conversation, and I have had the car suddenly start talking to me, and telling my that it doesn't understand whatever random thing it thought was a request of some sort.
