[Haskell] Core language inlined?

GHC seems to have a very powerful core language, which makes implementing
language features less painful. As further applications of Core were
mentioned: let other languages use it and build new features upon it.

Here's a silly idea: Would it be possible to use Haskell and Core in
parallel, in the same module or at least in the same program? Can Core
integrate smoothly with Haskell?

The benifitz of such feature would at least be:

* Easy implementation and testing of new language features
* Use language features that are used too seldom to justify an
implementation in haskell
* Some code may be easier to implement/understand, when it is in core form

Any comments?
