- After boot, the MSFC IOS takes over control of the supervisor,
  so if it crashes, you have no access to the switch management.
- Recovering from deleted/corrupt switch IOS is harder in native.
- The hybrid mode switch CLI is more quick for switch management.
- Lots of switch features aren't supported under the native mode.
