Programming in machine canonical form seems a huge leap backwards. yes.

But, that being said its format is not so far off of an apt CL file. Which is a binary format that postp massages into G-code.

I'm good with letting Linux cnc read and execute G-code.
It has gotten us by for the last 50 or so yrs.

I was not proposing programming in canonical form. I was proposing an interpreter that allows LinuxCNC to open APT files instead of G-code and run the programs without ever converting to G-code.

There is quite a bit going on between APT source and a cutter location file, let alone
a flavored G-code file.
In my opinion you would slow the processing time, possibly even to a crawl for large files.
But running a native binary CL file would "possibly" be faster.
