Even if never, the idea is to reuse skills, not code. (In the same way that you reuse little code from Rails apps when build Chef recipes)

That's not entirely true - you can reuse some libraries between client and server-side: underscore's utility functions are the underpinning for many node modules, sizzle and jQuery is great for DOM parsing when writing screen scrapers, etc. There's browserify if you want to run node modules in the browser.
