The main reasons for not installing Exchange on a DC:

a) Split permissions for Exchange isn't supported.
b) The Exchange Trusted Subsystem group is added to domain admins group and this given full domain admin rights in that domain.
c) Reduced performance due to running DC AND Exchange on same server.
d) DC must be a Global Catalog server.
e) Exchange services may not start if the DC is a GC server.
f) System shutdown takes longer.
g) Cannot demote the DC to a member server if Exchange is installed.
h) Cannot use Exchange as a clustered node if server is a DC.

There's no issues that I've come across running exchange 2013 on win 2012 R2 in a Virtual environment.  Just make sure the VM server is robust enough.  15k SAS drives is what I use and at least 16 meg ram for exchange.

Here's a MS link on the caveats of installing on a DC:

Although look at the SBS line of servers, even though they are no longer available, they ran DC & exchange on the same server.
