Recording whole band and mixing soundstage?

Thank you for participating!
I was greatly inspired by your UA session and loved to hear you speak in the clip about mic leakage as a natural thing in band recordings. I´m an avid proponent of recording everyone together if the project and room allows for it. Therefore I have a couple of questions on how you approach mixing when recording that way.

Do you imagine the soundstage, i.e. panning, of the mix prior to placing the musicians in the room - for e.g. drums center, main guitar left, and so on?

What do you are the main challenges, engineering wise, setting up the recording this way (amp levels, room sound, vox monitoring, and so on)?
