Cisco 3310 MSE without WCS

Is it feasible / functional to use a Cisco 3310 MSE (Mobility Services Engine) via CLI without WCS?

All of the documentation that I'm reading points toward initial configuration via CLI, then administration via WCS GUI.

Depends. My view of WCS is that it's benefitial as a central administrative point if you have numerous AP's, LWAPPS, ect. If you don't already have a WCS and are talking about one appliance. Just manage it through CLI. If you already have a WCS, I don't see there being a reason not to manage it through WCS. You would then at least have two options of how you want to  manage it.

We do not have a wcs.

We have hundreds of APs that we plan to convert to LAPs and put behind our new wlc's.

We also have a mse. Which has received initial config and is intended to perform wireless ids/ips.

Are there any decent cli config resources for the 3310 mse? It appears to just be a linux box at command line.
