Whether it’s a problem is up to you. A lot of classic recordings were made with this kind of setup.
Great! I'm sure they are buffered.

Is there any issue with the meter input not seeing the signal grounds of either the source or the monitor controller input? And actually the monitor controller input won't see the signal ground of anything that's normalled to it as opposed to patched in.
