Lack of EQUALP hash tables

I noticed that EQUALP is no included in the set of valid :TEST's for
hash tables (CLTL p. 282).  What was the motivation behind this?  An
EQUALP hash table seems like a perfectly reasonable type of hash table
to want, especially in applications where floating-point numbers and
integers are intermixed.  Implementing the many to one hashing
function seems to be a bit tricky, but not insurmountable.  Am I
missing something?
