Since it isn't hurting anything using a one node cluster, why not keep it on the cluster?  If you need to "de-cluster" your SQL server, you'll need to create another SQL instance, then use the article above to ALTER DATABASE.  Depending on your schema and number of databases, this could be a big task.
