Why would you even need the Microsoft dock? If you plugged this phone into the USB C port on the Acer monitor and then plugged the keyboard and mouse into the USB 3 ports, that should be it. That would explain why Acer dropped the accessories as they expect their monitors to be the accessories. It would be a win win for them.

You would need the dock if you want to use the phone with your existing monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Most people don't have a display that can take a video signal directly over USB at this point.

The dock is needed in order to take advantage of Continuum. You don't just get the phone's image on a screen, you get a proper desktop. Apps like Office also change their UI when run through Continuum. I think the only alternative to the Microsoft dock right now is Miracast.
