[Rd] Should CRAN accept packages with non-R code that transcompiles into R code?

It may be possible to create an R-like programming language that
transcompiles into R code (or otherwise constructs R objects and calls
R functions).

I'm not sure whether it would pass R check or not, I will probably try...

But the bigger question is:
Should CRAN accept packages written in such a way?

I could email Kurt Hornik or Uwe Ligges, and ask them.
However, I thought that I would ask here first.
