Default Re-routing stereo for 5.1

(Apologies to the high end purists used to big budgets for this question. I know this is not how things should be done but ...)

I've had a stereo session thrown at me that I need to convert to a rough 5.1 mix. (This is a quick job with no budget, and there's no immediate need for a perfect theatrical mix, LFE etc.)

The session has separate stereo aux busses for dialogue, spot FX, atmos and music and for reverbs.
I am not planning on doing much more than pushing a little of the reverbs into the surround channels and twiddling with the panning a couple of spot FX when appropriate.

Am I right in thinking the simplest thing to do is just change the outputs of all the aux tracks from stereo to 5.1 and pan accordingly?
