VERY cool, but you already knew that. Question; are you going to combine use of the flaps and spoilers w/ the ailerons for roll authority? I'm thinking you might need to in order to control an expected heavy model. Although I'm not sure how you would do that. I believe that real airliners do this but for example the spoilers move at a much smaller amount than the aileron defection so not to create too much drag during roll. One idea to reduce some weight is to connect the four outer spoilers together using .10 mil mylar on the back side of them so you can reduce the number of servos per wing half by three.
