I'm hoping to have some client side javascript run that will do some simple timing estimates based on the current block number. Is there a simple way to do this that doesn't require web3? I don't need access to any other data from the blockchain.

There's JSON-RPC API. In particular querying a provider eth_blockNumber should return the current block number.
