>> And what's the native support mentioned in INSTALL.docker.md?

When the document was written, there was an attempt made to make
docker daemon OVS aware. There was no interest for that exact work
piece of work from Docker. Instead, Docker is currently working on
Network plugins here: https://github.com/docker/libnetwork. Once that
work matures, there will be a "native" integration in the sense that
you can have your OVS interface inside a container before the
application starts. Does that answer your question?
