Default Re: 5.1 file channel order

Merging would be good so this isn't rehashed a third time.

The one line in the QA that should be changed is this one:
It is possible to export WAV files in SMPTE order at this time, but only files up to 5.1. Pro Tools uses the BWF Wave Extensible Standard channel order when exporting WAV files, which is the same as SMPTE order up to 5.1.
"Possible" doesn't really cover it. For BWF, 5.1 SMPTE order is the only way the file will be exported.

Right now it is open to interpretation when there is actually no choice.
Pro Tools Ult 2019.6, HDX 3, MTRX/SPQ, HD Omni Mac Pro 5,1 - 3.06 GHz 12 core - macOS 10.13.6 RAM 64GB, SSD 4 x 2TB, GPU GTX 980 4GB
