First, I will note that I prefer a hybrid spec on principle. However, the BioWare system is designed to prevent this from happening, top-loading the branches. That being said, because of some very strong t3 and t4 choices with good synergy in the sorcerer branches with lackluster t7s in the damage branches specifically, sorcerers tend to work better hybrid. This is a backhanded nerf on sorcerers because they cannot pure-spec as well as other classes, and have several points wasted in t1-t2-t3. This is made even worse by the need of almost any build to have at least five points in lightning.

Sorcerers, on the other hand, will likely see the greatest benefit from the extra five levels, but still requires improvements to t6-t7 slots.
