Idea parsing and refactoring engine as a separate product?

It would be great if it was possible (technically and legally) to use IDEA
PSI and refactorings outside of IDEA GUI
We have some code transformation tools we use for model driven code
generation and have to use JDK parser and AST and it is very low level
stuff. If we could license IDEA PSI stuff we would be able to do much beter

- As it stands now can owner of IDEA legally and technically parse bunch of
files do some transformations on them and write them back to files from lets
say Ant?
- If not, for JetBrains consired making it a separate product. Which can be
purchased by IDEA owner for an extra cost?
