Marvell/Orion WRT350NV2 is still using a "softswitch" in OpenWRT

The Marvell Orion WRT350Nv2 is still used as "softswitch" by adding "LAN1 LAN2 LAN3 LAN4" to a soft-bridge. This is absurd with a Hardware-Switch that handles 4 GE-Ports on a slow device.
The better choise is, using the mv-switch and create Bridges/vlans the usual way with swconfig and usual tools by configure that switchchip directly in hardware and route the different GE-ports via vlans to the CPUs internal GE-Port, like other Routers does.
Is an enhancement possible by using the integrated marvell GE-switch ?
