But I would agree that it would be nice to be able to run plain
(pdf)TeX and plain metapost with minimals. To be honest, almost
everything is there already, with the only exception that the formats
aren't generated automatically as they are in TeX Live for example.

Having pdftex.fmt, xetex.fmt and mpost.mem generated automatically
would be great, and not much overhead. (Perhaps a file or two are
needed for xetex.fmt, not much more.
