I'm not sure if you've had a reply yet, but have you seen
? That gives the basic details of multistream and links to the important
references. For pure six mics, likely isolated, it sounds like coupling
would probably be counterproductive, and each stream might be best as
monaural, so seven separate streams interleaved.

The main reasoning for multi-stream over multi-channel is flexibility.
There's no inherent notion of coupling or grouping of streams the way there
is channels; many separate simultaneous recordings can be multiplexed
together in one stream and separated to different receivers at the end. If
you don't need any of that functionality, you can just treat streams as
channels, and there won't be any delay or bitrate penalty.
