Should the top DTS MA / HR & Dolby TrueHD be included in the HiRez polls section of discs?

In the Spotlight polls HiRez has always been considered DVD-A and SACD based encoded discs, and not any of the DTS nor Dolby Digital formats of surround.

But now that both of these "flavors" are said to be 100% lossless in some of their top quality varieties, should those discs be included in the HiRez polls?

Sorry if this has been addressed already. If it is true and these newer DTS / DD surround discs really are now just as good as the traditional lossless HR then why not?
