Port VC to managed code / .NET Core / UWP+Xamarin ??

Hello,
with the target of making VC more portable and available on mobile platform, I wonder if it would be possible to convert the existing c++ code to managed code, where the .NET Core could be a good choice to create Win10 UWP and Xamarin Androind/iOS ports.

It seems however that VC use a lot of legacy C++ code which could never be used in such a portable app.
the current .NET Core 1.0 has also probably too many limitations, but maybe the upcoming .NET Standard 2.0 could work?

What do you think?
