Yes you can. The warnings are there because DC duties can take a lot of processor cycles and if you need to take the server down for maintenance on the SQL part, you have to take down a DC as well. Our development team has its own domain for testing, and uses one computer for PDC, SQL Server, and Exchange Server as well. It works (I credit lots of RAM), but SQL can drag.

SQL server can be installed on NT server ,be it a PDC or a BDC.
It does not count because SQL server is only a service running on NT.
It can be configured to work independently of NT users when configured to work with the "Standard"  mode.
