Classic vs.Standalone scenario in EBP implementation

My company is implementing an EBP 3.0 system and interfacing to an existing 4.6C R/3 backend (where SAP has been rolled out to the subsidiary company) or a non-SAP system (where SAP has not yet been rolled out). The scenario chosen is the 'Standalone' on the basis of this heterogeneous backend system landscape, and the fact that the synchronous RFC communication between EBP and R/3 in the Classic scenarios represents too much of a risk to the business. Is this a wasted opportunity to not take advantage of the ready-made EBP-R/3 integration of the Classic scenarios?

Do keep in mind that there can be multiple scenarios that can exist in a single EBP implementation.

A lot of the implementations I've been on where we've dealt with a heterogeneous backend system landscape, we've considered implementing both Classic and Standalone scenarios, split by business rules.

I would definitely suggest to explore why you cannot have both classic for R/3 backends and Standlone for non-SAP backends.
