No, it shouldn't be hard, but no one has had the time/motivation to do 
it. Open
an enhancement request at bugs.horde.org, ideally with a patch attached, to
make sure the request doesn't get lost.

I sort of see what you're getting at in terms of what you want to do, but I'm
still not sure what you mean by "abstract functions" that can format Horde's
data without actually using Horde - isn't that kind of what Horde is? :) Try
asking more specific questions about individual pieces, maybe? Also make sure
you look at the API methods ($registry->call('app/foo')) and the Horde_Blocks
that are available.
