I'm pretty sure the design guidelines actually call that out specifically as something you shouldn't do. Having a consistent way to handle search in all apps is one of those things that will almost certainly pay off in the long run, even if it takes a little getting used to in the beginning.

So, why does the Bing app have a search bar in the app rather than relying on the charms bar? You'd think that if this was really a guideline that at least the built-in apps should follow it.
