    Accepted Solution

    What I did in our environment was to create a domain in the perimeter network and created a one way trust between the trusted network and the perimeter network, so the wfe's where members of the perimeter networks domain, and also. a member of the sharepoint farm. Take a look at the link below, it may help you get an idea of the design.
