Default Max 3 accounts supported by BIS 2.0?

Just saw this. Is this news/has anyone tried more than 3 accounts?

I'm not entirely certain, because I don't have more than 3 accounts set up, but I think this article might only apply to Blackberry Connect devices, not that I'm terribly familiar with those, so really I'm just guessing

you can have up to 10 accounts w/ 2.0 - one of this can be a BIS address (@your, or you can choose to no longer have one

Yes, reading the article it seems that the number of accounts that can be integrated for a Blackberry Connect device has been reduced fronm 4 to 3 from BIS 1.8 to 2.0. My understanding is that for Blasckberry devices it remains the same at 10.

I have Cingular also (which has to be the WORST implementation of BIS!), and have FIVE email accounts PLUS my account set up for a total of SIX Internet Email accounts, PLUS a BES account.

I have a [CMIME] service book for each Internet email account, as well as Desktop and Web Client [CMIME] service books.

Perhaps they mean a total of three PUSH accounts? The Cingular implementation has NO push accounts including Yahoo which I hear other providers have push service for.
