We've seen this question come up a few times, and the simple answer is no - as long as the communicating computers have a trust in common, and the correct certificates are used, native mode works just fine.  This trust in common can use a single certification authority (CA) hierarchy or multiple CA hierarchies.  Because native mode is PKI-agnostic, this all happens at a lower level than Configuration Manager - we just need the PKI connection established before we can proceed with native mode communication.
