I always thought the strong magnetic fields posed huge challenges in and of themselves, eddie currents in electronics could destroy a lot of potentially critical systems, so shielding and design require a lot more work.

That is correct, and swept under my rug of "several million other engineering problems to worry about". Everything you mentioned is thought to be solvable, as best I know.
