Rounds per second isn't as critical in airsoft as it is in paintball, either. Whereas in paintball a lot of times success depends on filling the air with paint, you will quickly be detested using the same tactic in airsoft. Besides, the increased range and accuracy of AEG's over paintball markers generally makes it unnecessary.
Speaking as someone who plays stock class paintball (limited air and paint, pump action only) that tactic gets frowned upon in paintball circles too.
