But, as far as I understand, node.js will become a development requirement (and most probably a requirement for testing), but not for deployment. Bower is just another package manager, comparable to npm, pip etc. if you use that aside your systems package manager. The idea is, to use something like dpkg or rpm to provide dependencies for installation. During development and testing, it's proposed to rely on bower to install dependencies.
