Adding more speaker locations creates more reflections, dead zones, etc. The more complicated you make the system, the more it and the room have to be tuned to accommodate a single seating position within the room for optimal performance.

Well, you need more speakers if you want to play content that consists of more than two channels.  Beyond that obvious point, a multichannel system actually can make the room *less* of a factor (because more direct sound from more sources) and *mask* some audio deficits better than 2 channel...as Floyd Toole notes, since we are referencing him often here.  (He's also a fan of upmixing 2 channel content).
