Doesn't sound quite right... AAC is part of the MPEG-4 specs, and supports multichannel. Its also got some backing from Dolby, so I'd find it hard to believe that it wouldn't support what Dolby is doing:

AAC or 'Advanced Audio Coding' forms part of the latest specifications from the MPEG committee, and is their official successor to the popular MP3 format. As with MP3, the AAC format is an international standard, and is backed by several big-name companies, including Dolby, Sony and Nokia. »
