if the whole point of the BES environment, Exchange or Lotus environments, etc are for productivity and security, then you should likely lean on the latter as a definitive clue as to expose the BES (and the rest of your mail environment) to potential security risks.
with that said, if your Lotus environment is currently setup in a DMZ, then i think you should follow suit with the BES. but with that said (heh.. new fave phrase, i tell ya), you may want to go back and look at the reasons for putting a secure mail environment in an insecure zone...
