you do have a point,but ONLY in relation to riders that have come through the moto gp paddock.by the time they get to moto gp all the teams have had a close eye on them for at least 3 or 4 years so have a good idea of how they will fair against riders of their era as they all move up the classes.
for a long time now riders from the uk ,us and austrailia have generally come via superbikes,either wsb or national series so they really are an unknown quantity on prototype machines.
that is why they all have to start on crt bikes,even spies who really did look like a very,very special rider after his debut year in wsbk.
guys like cal that move class every year never had the chance to establish themselves in any class,but did keep increasing their knowledge/skill base,so bear in mind that even many of the moto 3 riders have more knowledge of the ins and outs of the gp paddock and tracks than someone like cal.
he HAS improved EVERY season
