AC3 to stereo WAV - Are the following settings correct?

I have the usual 5.1 AC3 from DVD that I want to encode to stereo WAV. I made a batch file.

Are the following eac3to commands correct for encoding to stereo WAV:

Code:
CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\eac3to"
eac3to.exe D:\Project\AC3.ac3 D:\Project\WAV.wav -downStereo -down16
Should I set any additional option, like -mixlfe, for example?

Unless you need a 16 Bit WAV -down16 is not needed, because 24 Bits represent the lossy compressed AC3 data (ever so slightly) more precisely.

It's off-standard (as per Dolby) to mix in LFE but usually it does not hurt.
