That would be perfectly possible. The only consequence is
that you have to divide you focus between routing done
on the mixer and within Ardour. For such use cases the
autoconnect works against you, so you have to do all of
it manually. It's no problem during mixing, but it takes
time during a recording session.

What happens regularly with my current setup is that after
one second or so you get an error saying that writing to the
disk failed for some reason. Restarting doesn't seem to help
in such cases, saving and reloading the session may help.
It's not something you'd want to happen twice in front of a
performing customer trying to concentrate on getting his/her
side of the punch right.

Yes, but that means you have to switch the monitoring manually
at the right points during the punch, and of course edit the
transitions later. The latter takes time.
