Why would not have an option of seleting a profile for initial submitters of an approval

Hi folks

I just got an doubt why we are not given a option of selecting any user belong to a profile for assigned approver of an approval process. I can see that we could add no. of users as approvers why not a we have a selectina a profile saying that any user from that profile allowed to approve it.

Profile is a very generic setting and it can be used by people in the same organization but different teams. They may have the same level of access but different reportees.

In such cases, we need to have a hierarchy of approvers, which is the reaosn I understand, you can select your Manager/name of the person you wish to assign the record for approval..

Thanks for your opinion. I agree with you,
What actually i was saying is providing another option of selecting profile (a group of users) as like user selection. Depending upon the business we opt the feature. for suppose in your scenario developer would go for User other wise profile.
