An "important" lesson from day one at Lync 2013 Ignite

Lync 2013 comes with new features and new functionality. To support all of these new functions, there has been introduced a big set of new PowerShell cmdlets.
This didn't come as a surprise to me, as I have been playing around with the preview for a bit, and I have been reading Tom Arbuthnot's excellent post on the subject.
One of these "important" new cmdlets is the "Invoke-CsManagementServerFailover" command. Why?
