pipad, was Re: bounded storage model - why is R organized as 2-d array?

Anyone see a reason why the digits of Pi wouldn't form an excellent
public large (infinite, actually) string of "random" bits?

There's even an efficient digit-extraction (a/k/a "random access to
fractional bits") formula, conveniently base 16:

I dub this "pi pad".

Is this idea transcendental or irrational?
