@jjg I think it may be a good idea to consider it. It certainly won't make you poorer, and I think you will appreciate the simplicity of it, as a kind of better Lisp and better Forth rolled into one. Vertigo certainly convinced me. It's possible that I may also borrow some good ideas from @akkartik's language if strict compatibility with standard REBOL is not considered necessary, but in a nutshell that's the general direction I think I'm going now.
