I gather that unlike Exchange and activesync that BB wants you to stay in the same system for syncing; that the concept of crossing over to sync with another computer outside of the closed system is not permitted. Much more security conscious. I gather that BIS is for the consumer, BES is for the Enterprise. They may want to add some flexibility as more MS mobile folks make the crossover to BB.
If you're on BIS, you can do it because calendar is sync thru the wire.
BES is a different matter, and yes security has a lot to do with it. If RIM gave the option to do both BES wireless and stand-alone wired sync, customers would demand that be controllable thru IT policy and most admins would disable it.
