Cisco 1400 Wireless Bridges - 3640's, yea or nay, or can the 6509 do it all????

Here's one for ya...
I'm putting up Cisco 1400 Bridges. I've got T-1's and 3640's right now, but the 3640's at most sites will be disappearing since I will have the 1400 Wireless in place. Or should they disappear?
Right under the 3640 router is a 6509 switch. Sup2, NAM, fiber, several PoE ethernet blades. Each network is a mirror image, 3640 T-1, and a 6509.
We are on a 10's network at all the sites, so let's say we have site 10.X.1.X, 2.X, 3.X etc. The T-1's at site 1.X will stay, 2,3,4, and 5 will all have 1400's pointing back to 1.X - I want to keep the networks separated, each site with it's own DHCP server etc.
Now, what's the best way to set this up, how would you go about it? Can the 6509 do it all? Should I keep the router in place? Is the new default gateway at 1.X, or do I use the bridge, 6509, same router as the default gateway at each site?
Have I sufficiently confused you?
