I can send direct pin messages, it's just the BBM that is choosing to send the request to the e-mail addy. Looks like a bug to me.
Instead of clicking the ball on the contact to add, hit the menu key and then you can request using pin. You'll need to have the pin stored in your address book. It will work like this on the [use once] feature, too.
