IME, costs for private backhaul circuits of any flavor are significantly 
higher than costs for plain internet access - so backhauling internet 
access (unless you have extremely restrictive access policies that you can 
actually enforce) through your WAN would/should cost through the nose. 
Routing only WAN traffic through the WAN reduces the size/scope/impact on 
those more expensive circuits.    Probably at the expense of additional 
complexity, of course.
