Compiler as a service is most likely too heavy weight for you, it does 
all complicated logic behind C# and unless your input rules are very 
complex you won't benefit from it.

I think the most suitable options for you would be 
System.Linq.Expressions. It's very easy to use abstraction on top of 
reflection.emit and it does some simple optimizations too.
