I was going to say I would think Lordco or possibly New-Line hose and fittings should have those taps too. I am fairly certain BSPP is pretty standard in Hydraulics as well.

Not that I've ever seen.
I have several decades of experience with hydraulics, 10,000 psi, 3000 psi.... You name it.
Every one I've built\worked on\serviced has been NPT threads.

Caveat : This is not to say that 'Internal theads for mating couplers' are not BSPP. They very well could be, but the equipment attachment side is usually NPT.

With my work at the brewery I am also totally familiar with DIN Metric.

Personal Computer watercooling is the first time I have interacted with BSPP.

Yeah you're right man. NPT (national pipe thread) is industry standard for most things but not all. If you wanted to cross over easily shark bite fittings work in a pinch. Most pipe sizes (other than drainage pipe) are held to standards.
Of course I would be disappointed to see a cooling build full of shark bite fittings :p
