Is using Luan to overlay soffit a good idea?

The budget isn't really an issue, but I don't want to spend the money to redo the entire house when I only have a few problem areas. I also wouldn't like having aluminum soffit on the gables and wood soffit around the rest of the house. I want everything to be the same.

I think if I get it replaced correctly, caulk it, and paint it, the wood should be fine.

Here is a picture of the rear gable. As you can see, it's pretty bad.

I got in touch with a siding contractor and he didn't want to do it unless I wanted to put vinyl on the entire house. Who knew finding someone to replace some soffit would be such a tough job.
