Our company is still using Roaming profiles for some of the users. Is it really a requirement that a user uses a Windows profile is local rather than roaming when in cached exchange mode.

It is not a requirement, but you will use significantly more server storage space and network bandwidth to maintain the OST file in a roaming profile.

No it is not a requirement. But imagine a user with cached Outlook and with additional shared mailboxes have an OST file of more than 10 GB. That will be trouble for your bandwidth.
