OpenStudio: Autosizing VRF units?

Is there a way to autosize VRF units in OpenStudio? Unmethours' message board discusses several methods to model a VRF in OpenStudio, but all seem to require having to model the exact system in question on your own, and/or spec'ing out a system as listed on BCL.

On that note, are the ductless heat pump systems on BCL the complete system, or do additional outdoor components need be added?

If there is a way to autosize, can it be done for the inside and outside VRF units independently? Indoor units being autosized by zone, and the outdoor unit being sized by the total system in question?
