Van Baelen actually goes on to say something similar, concluding that it is a fault or flaw with Atmos and that a sound object appearing off screen, behind us, will take us out of the movie. I can...

Merci bien pour ça.

I shall add this to the FAQ when we know the full Atmos for home specs etc. Meanwhile, none of my ceiling speakers will be directly overhead, so I am good to go. Thanks again.
