any comments and theories would be greatly appreciated

It works fine as long as you havent manually raised your domain functional level to 2008. You obviously dont get all the features of 2008, but no issues running this configuration its designed to support it.

We implemented almost the complete opposite.  We have a 2K3 PDC and a 2K3 BDC but run it in tanget with a 2K8 Exchange Server 2007 implementation running on top of a 2K8 Hyper-V.  We don't have any issues and have a mix of 2K3 and 2K8 servers throughout the organization.  As stated above, as long as you don't raise the functional level, you can intermingle them just fine.
