Chris,

Your right.
I always thought Exchange 5.5 on a BDC wasn't an issue and that was a
personal choice.
As long as your whole backup strategy was sound.
But people liked to debate on that, as witnessed on this list about 3
years ago.
But exchange 2000 on a domain controller especially if it has the five
roles of destiny; makes life interesting and NTDSUTIL takes on a whole
new meaning. I prefer the member server approach in that instance.

For the vast majority of organizations putting Exchange on a BDC doesn't
really matter 1 way or another IMHO.
