Maybe, but it has rather huge requirements:

-> The amount of work is HUGE(ok, we can limit it to e.g. Shader model 1.1)
-> There is some integration work to do(a bit easier since my shader/pipeline 
model changes)
-> It requires very good knowledge about x86 / x86_64 assembler
-> Mapping the shader instructions on regular FPUs is rather hard

So if there is someone who really enjoys coding in assembler and has excellent 
knowledge about it I am tempted to agree with shader emulation as a GSoC 
project. It surely isn't a project for a novice programmer.
