Actually it's slightly different. Essentially, it is Dolby Prologic.
In AC-3, for example, there is Lo/Ro which is a basic downmix of all
channels into left and right, and Lt/Rt which is a Dolby Surround
(a.k.a. Prologic) downmix.
In an LoRo downmix, you mix left surround into left, and right surround
into right. In an Lt/Rt downmix, you mix both surround channels into
both left and right, but left is phase-inverted.
