There is nobody in that situation, or anywhere even remotely close to that situation.
Anybody who hit A+ standard this year is good to go. Period. (Other than finishing top 3 at Trials, which I assume you have no problem with.)
Anybody who hit A this year needs AT MOST one more B standard.
Perhaps you're looking at Andrew Ellerton, who hit A+ in 2011 (not this year) and thus still has to hit B this year to prove fitness?
Personally, I agree that the standards should be simpler (hit IAAF standard and place at Trials and that's it), but let's not pretend that they're harder than they are. There's no A+ plus two As plus B required, in any event, under any circumstances.
