Yes, in this way you don't have to switch profiles at all, you just
end up with to sinks, one for the soundcard 5.1 output and a virtual
stereo sink from module-remap.

Pulseaudio remembers when you move streams from one sink to another
(using pavucontrol, for example), so the movie player would always be
playing on the surround sink and your apps go to the stereo sink
