Why not? In fact, it arguably already is. You can't really say that something
like Gnus is just an Emacs extension. I think it's more usefully thought of as a
program that just happens to run on the Elisp VM that is Emacs. :-)

Why not just use Emacs? Run an Emacs daemon process (properly isolated, so it
doesn't interfere with the user's Emacs process), feed it the Elisp code and
have it return the analytics that LSP requires. That doesn't sound too
