I'm fine with leaving the parens mid-sentence.  To me, the distinction is whether they're providing extra information about the entire sentence, or about a specific term in the sentence.  If it's about a specific term, use parens immediately after the term; if it's about the sentence in general, use a semicolon after the sentence.
