You think? Do you think that "these BES admins" are flying solo on this? Don't you think that perhaps in many cases, these mandates come from mahogany row? Most BES admins are under direction of superiors to enable certain restrictions such as disabling SMS messaging, and requiring a password.
MicroSD card usage can be used to circumvent attachment disabling on a corporate email platform. And can in fact be used to store company documents that in some cases you wouldn't be able to get out of the building otherwise.
