Is a self-hosting c2 compiler a project goal?

c2 is currentely implemented in C++. But would implementing a c2 compiler in c2 be a project goal?

I started on a C2 compiler written in C, since moving form C to C2 would be pretty easy. I didn't finish it though.

Also, self hosting creates a lot of problems with bootstrapping, so it might not be a great thing to do anyway.
