I think you're missing a point about WMA attachment support. Sure, you could download a WMA file from the internet and listen to it. You could have an email sent to you with a WMA attachment and you could download the attachment and listen to it. However, the BES can now process the attachment through the distiller and allow you to open it directly from a message (as opposed to having to download a raw file). This would have been bigger news (not that anyone uses WMA, imo) pre-BES 4.1.6 and OS 4.5 when the raw attachment download functionality was implemented. It was a big thing when they added in MP3 support a couple years ago.
