Wall-Mounting 28 Port Cisco Switch?

Due to lack of space, I had to design a skinny, longitudinal server cabinet, and was planning on using this Wallit Box to wall-mount a Cisco SG300-28MP switch. However, when I received the switch, I saw this blurb in the manual: "Only the 8-port models of the switch can be wall mounted." Huh?

I'm thinking that Cisco is simply saying that only the 8-port model can be wall-mounted without additional hardware, but it was too late to contact Cisco today. While I await Monday, I figured I'd ask the IPVM community if anybody had wall-mounted a Cisco switch larger than 8 ports? Am I missing any consequences from such an installation? Lastly, why would having the ports facing to the side be an issue? (see manual page below)

Thanks.
