We have a similar setup to your design, I too have read the documentation and everything etc and their recommendation of having a server closed to the local servers i.e. we have exchange server in Boston, HK. But what we have is 1 BES server for all our BES users (170 Users), serving users in Boston, Hong Kong, Europe.
There is about 15min delay for users in Asia, which they say is acceptable, so apart from that we have no issues. We are now testing the new blackberry's that are 3G for users in Japan. OK - at some point we were thinking of installing a BES server for Asia users to overcome this 15min delay but since they say its acceptable we have put that on hold.
I know its not a recommended design but it works and havent had any issues.
