I suppose whoever first used the terminology might have needed a single word to fit on some display. My exposure to it was on the Zenith SAT-HD520 (same as the Sony HD200), and it's similarly used on the next-year models from Sony and LG Electronics.

They also have "Hybrid 1" and "Hybrid 2" which are just Native mode but with HD material being locked to 720p or 1080i all the time.

I have the Sony HD200, and I use the Hybrid 2 setting because some Dtv SD channels look terrible converted up to 1080i. One reason why I would like to see this type of setting on the HD Tivo would be to record something in SD at 480i followed by something in HD at 1080i without having to manually change modes on the HD Tivo. Hopefully this is something they can fix easily and quickly, unlike some of the other nagging issues on some of the other platforms that went on for far too long (audio dropouts?).
