Stainless Steel Brake-lines

Why didn't BMW include these as standard equipment? If they are worried about crack or bending could they just wrap them in plastic like the after-market ones (i.e. SST) to reduce the risk of fraying from rubbing that BMW might be worried about? These types of lines run about $100 for front and rear lines and everyone who has ever done this upgrade has said it makes a big difference in pedal feel. If it does and its such a small expense, couldn't BMW just add $100 or so to the MSRP and throw them on?

Is there some downside to upgraded steel performance break-lines that I am unaware of that BMW is aware of other than money that has led them to avoid them?

Thanks for in advanced to anyone who chimes in!!!
