Thanks for responding Bob. We are mixing this way now. The main thing in the surrounds is audience reaction. My concern is that a producer sitting with the rear surround (that's voiced for the editor who is 10 feet away) right by their head will be distracted by the audience ambience.

A classic solution is putting dialog and effects mono center, music and ambiance front L/R and then strictly limit the use of surrounds to effects that "work" even if the level is 6 dB. off.
