It has been tried. On large scale and small.
And it continues to be tried.
But it does not work.

I repeatedly run into feature discussions where there claim is made that it must support complex scenarios but must also be 'simple' enough for users to understand it. That has resulted in in the following real cases.
1. Customer is now responsible for learning a programming language and providing programmers for it. Different projects required C#, Java and even a variation (and not a good one) of C. (The solution requires them to write code, application compiles it and dynamically injects it into the application.)
2. Solution is provided that does not provide full functionality for the actual known more complex cases. The customer is told they cannot have that feature.

There is always a point where one reaches that the complexity of the allowed solution requires specialized knowledge and training just to achieve the task. Thus no matter how one wraps it up there must always be a 'programmer'.

But only if they can program. And except for algorithm discussions they would also need to be a programmer in the language you are discussing.
