If you are purely on an Exchange-only environment and do not use PST archives for final delivery, then there are no issues. I would relay this decision to your userbase, though... and request feedback. If you receive too much warranted feedback, after fully explaining the feature, then I would implement it. Chances are, though, you will receive a lot of positive feedback.
BOHIC, this is not a hard delete of the messages, but rather support for hard deletes from the client application to the handheld. In other words, if someone shift-deletes something from Outlook, or empties their deleted items, or has a secretary delete an email through managed sharing, or moves a message to a personal folder, rather than leaving the message orphaned on the handheld, it is removed.
The ONLY situation that I can think of that would impact end users is if someone has their messages delivered to a PST, in Outlook, and did a wireless activation (thus giving them the ability to receive messages to the handheld, as it passes through their Exchange mailbox and sending through the Exchange mailbox. All messages would be removed from the handheld, in this scenario.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.
