Great question Michael and one that will be answered in Lick #2 on the 10 Licks Course, (you were given a slight head start)

The reason the natural 7th and b 7th are included in the Dominant BeBop scale is to make it an octatonic or 8 note scale. By playing the b7th on the ‘2’ we emphasis rhythmically the importance of the 7th on the second beat.

More to come in the video.
