If they weren't credentialed, that would mean anyone can put some signatures on a form and turn it in. The RNC is not going to accept it unless it contains the names of recognized delegates.
There are some states like OK and LA, where 2 delegations are going to go down there, but a committee will have to decide which one gets credentialed. There is also the issue of whether or not all of the delegation makes the trip to Tampa. They are not going to recognize a signature from a delegate who does not show up.
