Interesting aspects, you bring up (T3 as a standalone application);


a) HipHop + HPHPi where developed for PHP performance-reasons
and also for "a web-application" (Gesichtsbuch) and not for 

b) Given the advancements of the recent years in regards to bandwidth 
and browsers I, still and again dont see any need for a CMS as 
standalone application.

c) In regards to TYPO3-performance-improovements, I stick to what I said
