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."
