The immersive formats are contained within those audio codecs (they aren't changing everything for UHD Blu-ray), so yes.

That 6.1 discrete track had insane, yet tight, structured bass. Too bad DTS doesn't fund their own remixes at Skywalker Ranch like they used to!

I think it really depends on the particular make and model being utilized and how much volume they're wanting to push through the overheads (due to room volume, SPL numbers wanted, etc.).

But they don't have or won't have DTS:X and no HDCP 2.2. The newer 2015 models and the few updated models fix that discrepancy with 18 Gbps HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 together.

The 7702 will not be getting upgrades of HDMI 18 Gbps or DTS:X. As JD mentioned, its replacement will. You'll have to wait until October, however.
