IMHO it's one of the advantages of FLOW3 over other frameworks that it's 
core can stay quite slim and that you can (will be able to) easily 
add/remove packages on the fly.
If I only want to use FLOW3 as backend for my REST api there might be no 
need to have the templating engine included.

I think a standalone product which works great can be a teaser for 
FLOW3. Furthermore we planned to implement the engine for TYPO3 v4 as 
well to ease the transfer.

You don't have to.. and you will miss some neat features ;)
