Seems to me that the most important advantage of moving to D is to attract developers that are unfamiliar with C++, so using selected parts of Phobos would make it a lot easier and fun for them to contribute.

I assume refactoring, high quality documentation and perhaps a tutorial too, of course. Seems to me that lowering the "anxiety threshold" could be an important move.
