To restate when I define WP_USE_THEMES as false I would expect no part of
the theme to be loaded including the theme functions.php. This is
regardless of using my own AJAX handler. What if I were just side-loading
WordPress and needed WP core functionality but not the theme?
Not a big issues. I'm already gaining a large efficiency using the
SHORTINIT and bypassing loading all the plugins for each request.
Correct. When using the WP admin-ajax handler it loads all plugins into the
environment before servicing the specific ajax handler. This is expected.
And this is where I'm using my own handler. Then I can decide what parts of
WP I needed to load.
