Every situation is different.What is wrong with telling a bronze, on a peak flight, that their upgrade request has a zero chance? Or if only a small chance, that could be communicated and the passenger can then take the risk accordingly.
A flight booked ~350 days in advance may not be full and may also not be traditionally a peak flight so the information presented would be meaningless as the flight sells out closer to departure.
Also a flight 1 day may have 10 upgrades while the next day it has none.
The software you are asking for is too complex. It needs to consider moving holidays such as Easter, school holidays, special events such as Olympics etc.
This is yield management and you want a simplified version to assess your chances of an upgrade. Perhaps what you need us confirmed upgrades at time of booking but I am not convinced Qantas will have any interest in that either.
