Pros to having leaf switches be their own l2 fabric?

In regards to a leaf 7 spine design, I was just curious to get feedback on the pros/cons of having leaf switches being interconnected(??). also, some vendors allow for single switch technology/l2_fabric? what would be the pros/cons of using a  layer 2 fabric technology for the ToR switches having them all interconnected as one single switch?  would that destroy the traditional leaf/spine design?

 

thank you,

I hope you are talking about fabripath here. 

My thought is interconnecting leaf switches may introduce spanning tree issues as you may have start to see two switches as root.(being considering the fact that every leaf switches should be the STP root for the classic vlans).

I have not checked this before or seen it before. But this is what i can think of.

Hope this helps and rate my post if you find it useful.

 

Thanks,

Madhu.
