Extending the original question slightly, would it be safe to have the mixer switched off via a power sequencer that simply turned off power to the outlet that the mixing board is plugged in to? In this case, the power down bypasses both the software and hardware shutdown functions built in to the board.

That’s exactly what we do with our GLD and it seems fine from that point of view. There are other issues with phantom on power up that have been documented elsewhere. One interesting quirk is that doing a software shutdown only disables the surface but, of course, the mixer continues to pass sound until the power is actually shut off.
