True, I indeed just joined today, but I am hoping I did to bring elements that can be of value, it isn't just for the sake of arguing.
Technically, it doesn't matter that it's different on another DVD. There are many ways to 'fake' surround effects by just adding reverb or other spacial effects; those are "more wrong", and may not what the people at lucas film wanted to do.
In nature, the orchestra cannot be moved to be behind you and have the instruments be on the same side as when it was in front of you. If it did, then the orchestra is not facing you and you're no longer in front of the violins but rather behind the percussions, the whole balance of the orchestra would be different.
Separately, you also cannot really be sitting in the middle of the orchestra, which is what the surround "reverb effects" attempt to fake, including variations of Pro Logic and other fake surround effects generators. It would change the balance as well.
Therefore, I would use caution before rejecting the comment that it was a creative dicision. If one makes the creative decision that the orchestra is behind the viewer, then it makes sense to rotate orchestra around the audience.
