Theoretically, yes.

Would it still be u-boot?  The changes likely would be so large that the 
result would not be recognizable as u-boot.

Has anyone done it?  I am not aware of anyone doing it.  The question 
has been asked before but no patches posted saying "u-boot in 50K" so I 
suspect not.

You have the source and a challenge, if you care to accept it ;-)
