SQL Server 2014 ClickOnce bootstrapper packages

Visual Studio 2013 comes with bootstrapper packages for 'SqlExpress2008R2', 'SqlExpress2012' and 'SqlLocalDB2012'. SQL Server 2014 was released earlier this year but bootstrapper packages are still unavailable. Please release the bootstrapper packages.
Although it would be possible to create a package by myself there are a few problems which make this difficult and undesirable:
- What are the fwlink links for download packages from Microsoft's website
- What are the public keys for the packages

LocalDB in particular is supposed to be used as a replacement for SSCE which is deprecated. How can we use it if there's no simple way to deploy it? It would be very very simple for Microsoft to update and release a package so why haven't they?
