Why is Buck controller not advertised as current source?

Hi,
The average output current of an RT6208 Buck would be Ipk/2.....you can set Ipk with a resistor...this gives an excellent low component count , efficient, current source, (current clamp) with intrinsic short circuit protection.
Why does the datasheet not advertise this excellent current clamp feature?

Also, why is the RT6208 the only monolithic BCM Buck chip with settable peak current, in the world?

the chip is not set up as a regulated current source, ave curr mode achieves this, also giving excelent current clamping and short ckt proof - ness

The beauty of CrCM for the buck - is low(er) switching losses than a std buck.
