Rand would not bother with trying to hunt BA members, true.

But with Rand running around who knows where (as you point out, it's unclear where he goes or what he does there) he could very easily accidentally run into some BA members. That's what ta'veren is all about: making the unlikely happen all the time. If he had a list then at least he could find out that they were not trustworthy before turning his back on them to walk on.

As for the channelers who could help hunt down the BA: apart from the BT, there are also the WOs (who might or might not cooperate with Egwene if she doesn't tell them what it is about) and the Windfinders (who almost certainly have not heard from Egwene precisely who is on the BA list).

Finally there is the possibility that Rand would have said "tricky problem, I don't have any good suggestions right now, I know that you will do whatever is possible". In that case, Egwene would have been no worse off than she is now, but she would have given Rand some reason to actually consider her anything other than merely someone who is only looking out for the narrow interests of the AS only.
