This is very similar to the debate regarding installing Exchange on a Domain Controller. Installing SCCM to a DC is not a recommended procedure, but it IS a supported operation. There is no reason why SCCM cannot be installed to a domain controller. It is simply not recommended because it requires roles such as IIS to be installed - these roles can cause a security risk if run on a DC.

Here's an MS Forum post which proves this: http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2705119&SiteID=17
