Why does BCF (boron carbofluoride) not exist?

BCF (boron carbide fluoride, or boron carbofluoride, not to be confused with another so-called BCF molecule that has nothing to do with it) should exist as a vapor molecule with the bonds B≡C-F, it’s simple; but it doesn’t seem to exist, or I can’t find any information.

Instead, other molecules like C2O, FBO, NCF, etc, do exist.

Why not BCF?
