Our alternative to ICU have some esqueletal implementation, lacking HUUGE
amounts of data, and having lots of Wrong information last time I looked.

No chance, having parts in VB.NET would only turn it into an island, and
make team comunication harder.
Mixing .NET languages in the same project is asking for trouble, and I
always advise my clients and students against it.
But you can write lots of test-code for the compiler. We need lots of vb
code for it, and vb applications. For example, would you like to give a try
on porting DNN? The BLL/DAL for now as the ASP.NET pages would stumble in
other places (CodeDom).
