I'm with KieranK the exception should be full range for those that can
stand it.

Maybe I am not best placed to comment as I mixdown to 2ch, but while
people here argue that full range is better quality, I would agree a
bit, but unfortunately many movies are mixed in such a way that in order
to hear the dialogue the loud bits become way way too loud for comfort.

The argument that DTS/AAC/TrueHD decs don't do it IMHO is invalid as in
the latter two cases at least this is only due to incomplete (and from
my pov sometimes therefore unusable) implementations.
