Cisco Cat 65XX 68XX Nexus 5k 7k 9k - modules hot pluggable?

I have been away from the big Cisco chassis now several years. Can someone who's up-to-date tell me if modules for these various platforms can be removed/inserted while up? I'm on assignment with the big stuff again. Thank you.

The only Cisco modules I have seen that are NOT hot pluggable are WICs on some ASR routers.

On the 6500 chassis the only thing that might not be hot pluggable is the fan tray. I don't see how Cisco would be able to sell any gear into the enterprise space if it wasn't hot pluggable.

Remember,  you're now in the realm of VSS, NSF, and ISSU. You should be able to replace supervisors and do IOS updates while continuing to forward at both L2 and L3 for all connected ports.
