That would be quite neat.

Then adding Hurd to other distributions would be easy, too. 

Then, the sole question will be the tasks that Hurd covers.

That sounds like the most powerful
way to spread the Hurd. 

People could then create 3rd party programs which
depend on the Hurd and run on every GNU/Linux distribution out

Reasons for switching from GNU/Hurd/Linux to a Hurd without Linux
could then be 

* have a cleaner system or
* go GPLv3. Maybe also 
* „Linux
gets pushed into directions I don’t like“. 

Do you see other reasons?
