Question about Beta Raid testing

Dungeons, Raids and Scenarios
HI,

I was just wondering about the "Pre made" level 85 toons and the beta raid testing in Cata. The pre-mades come in with a full set of epic items which I presume drop from the bosses in which they are fighting.

Wouldn't it be more accurate to test the bosses with gear as if you have not been in that raid yet? In other words are normal raids being balanced against toons which are already completely geared out from those same raids?

I am not sure what the reasoning is for this.

Thanks.

So baddies have some sort of chance of killing trash mobs.
When we were testing heroics, we were given normal gear (one tier below).
When we were testing normal raids, we were given heroic dungeon gear (one tier below).

This. If you watch some of the normal kill videos, the entire raid is in blues.
