A bit late to this discussion.

I think such an approach could carve out its own niche applications. Applications upgrading to or requiring blistering speed would need to consider alternatives as they do now (I mean that you always have to pick your solutions according to your requirements). A really really big plus for this project would be that it would stress test Rebol for reliability and stability. If you do it, I'd love it. Especially with the functionality already discussed. Brett.
