It's simple really.

ALWAYS order surround channels this way:

1 - Left
2 - Right
3 - Center
4 - LFE
5 - Left Surround
6 - Right Surround

This is SMPTE specification for surround channel layout. Any other layout for surround channels is asking for trouble for the next person. Anyone working in production or post or projection is expecting this order, and when the channels aren't in this order, it's a guessing game. Any other "established" ordering was made before the SMPTE spec, and the SMPTE spec aimed at eliminating confusion.
