Extending BAS / payg income instalment deadlines QE March

I was wondering if it has ever been put to the table to extend the deadline of BAS & payg income instalments for QE March activity statements of BAS & payg income instalments. Why do I ask? Because for QE December there is an extension of one month offered due to the Christmas / New Year period and loss of working days. So why can't a pro-rata extension be offered for QE March of at least a week, bringing due date to 7th of May in lieu of 29th April. With everything falling due in April (if you do not have an agent lodging your BAS), it can bring a lot of stress to the small to medium business owner to complete the work and lodge on time due to time lost from Easter and Anzac day. Thank you for listening :) .
