ML Integration with Mixtures

According to pages 482-483 of the manual, ML estimation with ordinal dependent variables requires Algorithm=Integration for Type=General, but does not require it for Type=Mixture.
1. Why is that?
2. Is it ok to use Type=Mixture with a single class, to fit models with ordinal dependent variables without using integration?

There is a special path in mixture where random effects of continuous latent variables are not estimated and therefore numerical integration is not required. If a model requires numerical integration, it will require it using GENERAL or MIXTURE.
