Of course not, in Hold Em the equity calculations are vastly different from PLO. In PLO even good Aces aren't a huge favorite unless your opponent is also paired, so you can't really compare the strategies of play from one to another. In Hold Em sometimes one pair is going to win, in PLO you're going to be running into a lot more sets, straights, flushes and full houses.

I understand how not as strong Aces are in PLO vs HE, my point was more that AA in holder is a premium hand and you don't want 7 players seeing a flop.
A premium hand in PLO is similar to AA in Holdem. Get the crumb bums out the the hand pre.
If 7 players see the flop you have so many more factors to compete against,
Sticky lag that has 4 outs. (hi ! yeah that's me , not going anywhere)
The tight player who connected and has OESD. (He's not going anywhere).
The fish with top pair who thinks he's hit payday. (he's not going anywhere)
The 6543 guys who gets a piece. (not going anywhere)
The Two guys that whiffed EVERYTHING. (he's probably folding)
And you. The guy with 53% equity. Up against 5 players thinking you are Waaaaay ahead. And in theory yes you are. But not a great strategy. 5 players seeing 2 more cards. The thought Gives me chills.
You never want 7 players seeing a flop. EVER. The only time I want 7 players seeing a flop is my first buy-in and we all doing a flip for 100
