Riddle me this Batman! Why aren't SDVOSB companies a Required Source of Supply or Service?

This will be polarizing and likely cause many to take up arms, but hey, that's why I'm also the "INSTG8R."
 
In light of a recent development where UNICOR was allowed to compete and win business as a HUBZone firm (no, they are not) on a DoD requirement (GAO upheld the award) and my opinion that it opens the door for more rampant pillaging in the shrinking land of small business opportunities, I had a thought about leveling the playing field.
 
Since service-disabled Veterans can be recipients of support offered by the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (AbilityOne), wouldn't companies owned/operated by severely disabled Veterans be subject to the same acquisition benefits as UNICOR and AbilityOne?
 
Why aren't SDVOSB companies considered a "Required Source of Supply/Services?" That would certainly provide maximum benefit to those who made significant sacrifices for our Nation.
 
Riddle me this Batman!
