BMI is utterly useless information, because there really is no such thing as an average weight based on height that gives any useful information - even if you could accurately calculate such an average number it would be entirely without context. The average weight of a 6 foot tall Samoan man is different than the average weight of a 6 foot tall man in Eastern Asia. The average weight of a 6 foot tall, 18 year-old man is different than the average weight of a 6 foot tall 40 year-old man. There is no ideal weight based on height, because despite the protestations of some, people are born with vastly different frameworks which alter what their weight would be at an idyllic percentage of body fat and muscle. There is no ideal weight based on height because some people have to eat different types of diets and do different types of weight-training in order to build muscle mass. There is no actual single example of a golden-ration human, anymore than there is a single perfect nutritional regimen that meets every human beings dietary needs.
