The very reason SP2 provided a firewall was to provide host/application
level security. 

I seriously think instead of disabling the Windows Firewall, the Domain
Admin should configure exception list by using Group Policy. Please don't
disable the firewall. You may have a perimeter firewall, but it does not
provide Host and Application level security. If somebody brings in a
infected laptop / pc, the perimeter firewall can do nothing. 

Whatever interference there is, should be tested and fixed (e.g. Allow
Exception )
