Then I say go for it, sounds like a pretty good reason to me

Tell me about it, feels like every time I have to move mine around I feel I get a little bit shorter

Sure, 1 volt per Octave is the standard common to moog and Roland so I don't see why the scaling wouldn't be fine, so yes you'd be able to use it as a standalone analog module.
I haven't done much with CV either yet but I think that the Portamento on the Taurus will work fine, depends how it's designed I suppose, can't hurt to try it though.
Portamento is just a lag processor which basically puts a lag on the voltage change when you change notes.
If it processes the incoming CV with the lag circuit then It'll be fine, I'm pretty positive that all monosynths work like this, but like I say I haven't done a lot with it myself so can't say for sure.
