Why can't we offer a bounty of less than 100 rep on PMSE?

On Stack Overflow, a bounty can be offered for as little as 50 reputation points. As a relatively low-rep user, I'm not all that excited about offering 100+ bounties on other questions as a means of generating interest in questions that I think are meritorious, but what I have very little stake in personally.

Why are we prevented from offering 50-point bounties? Can that be fixed? If not, why not?
