Here's an analogy that may help to explain why this is silly:
"We've designed a language X for writing compilers. What language
should we implement the compiler for X in? I know -- let's design
another language Y specifically to do that. It will have a 358-page
spec, but won't be expressive enough to do anything useful other than
write a compiler for X."
