So technically the S800 should support their LTE bands. Google likely had to disable them, similar to what they did for LTE on the Nexus 4 (though in this case specific bands and not the entire LTE radio).
I guess, in theory, someone could probably re-enable those bands and if a VZW simcard fits in it, it could work on Verizon as an LTE-only device. In theory...
