From what I’ve heard from people who upgraded from 5.1.2 to 5.1.4, even those with entry-level systems, I’ve seen many state that 5.1.2 -> 5.1.4 was a larger jump than 5.1 -> 5.1.2.

I do not know if I understand you well.
You could add two ´´on wall ´´ speakers , while keeping the two ceiling speakers.The cost would be low.
you would have a 5.1.4.
That depens on your walls configuration
The problem is in the installation. If I kept a 5.1 system I would be buy 2 Paradigm floor speakers and center speaker. All the wiring was done 11 years ago when this room was frame. The wires are all inside the walls and it all goes to a closet where the equipment is. My front ceiling speakers are set up for 5.1 and would have to be moved to proper Atmos position. Plus I would want floor speakers for rear surround and that would also be tricky because of the wiring. If I just did 5.1 I would probably continue to use rear ceiling for surround and then there would be no cost. It would just cost a lot of money for speakers and installation
You can also ask your dealer about the futur of Auro 3D
Could it be implemented with your systeme at low cost.( one ´´ voice of God ´´ ceiling speaker to be added )
I just read the article on Auto-3D. Sounds interesting. If I have two speakers for Atmos installed I will have 3 unused front ceiling speakers, so I think it will be possible.
I have a fan in the closet that vents to the attic. I will ask if that is enough.
No plans to ever sell but eventually our children might sell
