Keystone in stand alone mode for IAM services

I am going through the documentation of Openstack and especially keystone to check if it can in stand-alone mode when used in non-openstack landscape provide Identity and Access management services such as (authentication, authorization, SSO, user provisioning, etc). From its very outset, I've a feeling that it's quite lightweight and can very well provide Auth/Authz services through Restful api which is in a way good enough to work even in non-openstack environment.

Just wanted to know your thoughts on how feasible you think keystone is usable in non-openstack env? or is there any strong dependency with openstack?

The Keystone developer docs describe how to install keystone standalone. I expect this is how many of the developers work on it. I don't have any experience using it a non-OpenStack environment, so perhaps somebody else could comment. (
