It is not out of the question that Meb, Culpepper, Sell, and Ritz could have a bad race in the spring of 2007 (ie not finish, craps, ect). That would put them in a position to have to run fast at the trials. And I am guessing you would like at least a couple of these guys on the team.
If the trials course is difficult it makes it harder to be on the team regardless of the individuals talent.
