Probably just because no one has ever asked for it.  BSR is very rarely
used- most folks just use static anycast, which gives you all the benefits
of BSR without the warts.

Sure it is- that's what the hash does- predictably select an RP per group.
It's predictable, just not easily predictable- you need a calculator.
