Given the limited useability of the current instance finder and the effort and fanfare that went into producing it in its current state I doubt turbine has the resources or ability to upgrade it so that leaders can manually inspect and choose from the pool of available players for an instance, unfortunately.
Just roll the bonuses into the instance join panel and be done with the IF, its dead for its intended purpose already.
