I don't see the need of increasing the number of channels limited by 
AOUT_CHAN_MAX as, in my understanding, does not belong to the same code 

The ambisonic channels will never be reordered, and you have no aout 
which will support that high number of ambisonic channels, or will just 
support it by ambisonic passthrough. The only ambisonic -> regular 
channels conversion needs to be aware of ambisonic channels count, and 
can still mix output to a mapping within AOUT_CHAN_MAX.
