first of all, I'm not at all familiar with the mLAN technology, so can't 
comment on this.
However, I had used similar setups in the past: once for "An Ambient 
then for recording "A tätowierte Katz'" 

In both cases, the setup went something like:
computer running a DAW software, RME digiface (3xADAT I/O 1xSPDIF I/O), 
two ADAT I/O pairs connected to a DDX3216 console (32x16x8x2 console w/ 
16 analog ins and 2+4 analog outs and a pair of ADAT I/O), the remaining 
ADAT I/O connected to an ADA8000 (8ch analog I/O w/ micpres). There was 
also something connected to the SPDIFs I think...(Eclipse?)

The problem here was: there were three things which did some kind of 
routing: the console, the digiface matrix, and the DAW. And as you said, 
this can get rather complex, because a) you don't have something 
physical to look at and, more importantly, b) you don't have one pivotal 
routing point.

That being said: I would suggest that if this works for your 
application, go with the first (mLAN) route, this way being able (as I 
understood your description) to do everything routing-wise in your 
mixer. Or find a way to control everything from your DAW via some 
virtual mixer there. Everything else has a great chance of ending in 
chaos during a performance/live recording situation (including feedback 
loops - and we're not talking the good feedback here).
