It's all about audio "object" placement and speakers like the RS that work well for surround (as it creates a large sound field) would defuse the pointed nature of Atmos affects.
Maybe I'm wrong and if you use them I would be interested in how they work out.
I am using 4 - RS-52IIs for my Top Fronts and Top Rears and the actually work well. From their description "Exclusive Wide Dispersion Surround Technology (WDST) enables surrounds to reproduce localized and ambient sounds with unlimited placement flexibility.". Ideally speakers with a smaller dispersion would probably work better but I wanted timbre match and don't like the look of bookshelf speakers ceiling mounted. In-ceiling also weren't options and I needed speakers that would work well from over 10 feet away (ceilings are nearly 15 feet high). Also I find my setup completely immersive; Your mileage can and will vary.
