can we install multisite just to have access to your mu plugins, but run only 1 site?

We might not need to create a big network and give customers sites or blogs.
However we want to build a community, and use the functions that your plugins offer, but most of them need multisite installation.

Can we just run our site (1 site) on multisite installation to use your community plugins? or do you recomend just go and play-edit with buddypress?
