Yes indeed.

Short answer: Yes, and the incremental path will be more/less difficult 
depending on which application framework you want to move to. [/captain 

Long answer: Pretty much all the template frameworks out there use 
{{mustache-style}} syntax. Some application frameworks use handlebars 
directly (ember), for some it's pluggable (knockout), others have their 
own framework with similar markup (angular). From what I saw of 
status.js, it's really not complicated enough to preclude a refactor to 
any of the above.

Also, what Monty said.
