Basically no.

D has a lot of standard library types in druntime/phobos, like 
arrays and other containers. Even if you implement your own GC at 
implementation level, the standard library types will still use 
the default GC and having other GC properties you probably don't 
want. Managed pointers enables you to swap out the entire default 
GC all together including GC usage in the standard library.
