He already did in some way. If you define Android Go as "The Android Go operating system is based on the regular version of Android but it’s optimized to run on smartphones with 512 MB to 1 GB of RAM", adriandc already povided a patch based on it with the Low-RAM Property Patcher, as stated above.

When you follow the link you will find the following statement:


Low-RAM Property Patcher is made to give Android Oreo users an easy control
over the low-ram property from the Go configuration, responsible for the UI changes of Go.

Its purpose is to simply enable or disable the low-ram property from the build.prop,
but also to retain this user decision through the ROM upgrades (new releases, OTA)...


Developers should get less requests to compile with or without Go

As adrian mentioned the low-ram patch in this Pie-ROM description, it should work for this release, too, not only for Oreo.

The solution provided by adriandc with a patch is even better than a whole standalone ROM, because you can switch it on or off and in the end it is up to the user if he wants to use it or not.

The idea behind it is very well done by adriandc.
To answer your question: He already did!
