I have an enterprise pool deployment of Lync 2010. Can I install the group chat server components on the servers that make up my front end servers as well?

I notice this link is actually for OCS 2007 R2 -- I cannot find the relevant documentation for Lync that would confirm this, but I would strongly believe that requirement has not changed from 2007R2. – Peter Grace May 6 '11 at 16:01
