Supply fails to meet demand

Could the exam boards not be persuaded to modify their supply of past papers?

At present I have to approach the board for its brochure because a simple request for "last year's maths GCSE paper" is rendered meaningless by a plethora of obscurantist code words and numbers and jobsworthian regulations about payment minima and acceptability of methods. Then, supposing I have interpreted the jumble in the brochure correctly, I can make the actual order. And I have to do this again and again for every exam board with which I deal.

Why can I not go to a single source and purchase unambiguously named exam past papers? This is not rocket science, it's called marketing.
