RebSM variant written for Red

I have been looking a bit into making RebSM suitable for Red. Possibly a Red/System implementation? There are some points of attention for that:
Objects -> are almost done for Red.
to type! -> not a lot available, perhaps only minimal available types for now
file (I/O) -> for my current app not a problem, could be added later.
What are the chances of a succesfull port? Anyone already did something alike or triggered by this idea?
Because I am not fond of the name RebSM, I also dislike calling this project RedSM, so I came up with the projectname RedSTORM.

You mean building rebol 3 on top of Red and integrate them?

No just a port to Red or Red/System. That is also the reason for the limitations of RedSTORM, because of the current implementation of Red not being complete enough to support all features of RebSM.

okay. But it seems that Red will also have a dialect which has similar functions as Rebol. After all, it is intended to be a full-stack language.
