[Rd] Why no support for 3-digit HEX colours?

When specifying an RGB colour in R, is there a strong reason not to accept
3-character HEX codes? In CSS and many other languages, a colour of "#ABC"
is automatically converted to "#AABBCC", and I was wondering if R could
support that as well, or if it was a conscious decision to not support it.
