Thank you for this suggestion, Neal, and to those that have commented and up-voted. Let me provide a little explanation. Exchange Web Services is a per-server license. You only buy the one license for the whole server. Any user on that server, therefore, can use EWS. Conversely, Exchange ActiveSync is licensed on a per-user basis. You get a license based on the number of users to want to use this service.
If we were to combine to the two protocol licenses, then the EAS would be based on all users on the server not just the ones you want enabled. This would significant increase the cost of licensing.
I hope this sheds a little light on why the licensing separation between the two protocols.
