That's not preferred for most mainly because the forwarding method either A) forwards and then deletes in mailbox or B) forwards and leaves a copy in mailbox. If you let it delete in mailbox after forwarding to BB then you have no place to read/reply from PC or print it, if desired. If you leave a copy then you have to go clean it out now and then.
With setting it up through the BIS you can choose to delete from Handheld only or mailbox and handheld. For me this means I can delete and not have to go back and clean out my gmail mailbox online. Also, this allows me to have a place to go back and print from, if necessary. Also, I can send from any address I have setup through BIS on my BB.
