~/.grass.*rc are sourced into the interactive session shell. If your
$SHELL is e.g. csh, you probably aren't going to have a
~/.grass.bashrc, and you aren't going to be able to source a
~/.grass.cshrc into a bash script such as Init.sh.

Even if your $SHELL is bash, ~/.grass.bashrc may contain commands
which don't make sense outside of an interactive shell.

There wouldn't be any point. The grass63 script sets $GISBASE then
runs Init.sh; anything useful that could be done in grass63 can be
done equally well in Init.sh.
