Technical answer: yes, it is (but requires a lot of work that currently
is better we focus on finishing what we begun).
Political answer: I proposed it years ago, perhaps even from the very
beginning (I don't remember when, I was given write access by Jason+Rex
at the begenning of 1999), but the reply from the developers was warm.
The reason is due, I guess, to two main reasons. a) the picture MS
marketing made for NT. It is not seens as a standalone core plus
subsystems, but as "Windows", a single object, a single product, a
single piece of code. This explains why even thinking of a subsystemless
ReactOS is, for many people, unconceivable. But, even NT can run
without subsystems at all: see the tect mode recovery shell Russinovich
sells on Winternals. b) making reactos neutral, removing the points
where the design got polluted by win32-ism is expensive in both design
constraints and developers time.
N.B. As usual, political answers require much more words than technical
ones and the informative content is ofter lower.
