I should note that Backbone can use Zepato instead of jQuery, making it much less than the combined JMVC MVC dependencies with jQuery. But, you lose quite a bit without jQuery.

Yes, any jQuery-based UI library should work great (as long as it uses jQuery's event system for events).

That's not true. Backbone is 5k with it's underscore dependency. I'm not sure what spine is. But here's the breakdown: Class: 1k, Controller: 1.74k, Model: 2.8k, $.View: 1.6k, $.String: .5k. For a combined total of 8.6k. That's 3k more, but a lot more useful features.
