It's a matter of separation. Keeping the instruments away from each other as much as possible in terms of frequency overlap is fairly critical. That means filtering out overlapping frequencies in places, which will vary from situation to situation. This is the sonic version of not having instrumentation doubling up the same notes in the same octave ranges, which can cause cloudiness. That of course is a matter of musical arrangement and would be a musical decision rather than a sonic one, but the principle is somewhat similar.
