Why specify Delay in TRL?

Hi, I've just been reading the famous ENGEN paper on TRL calibration and was wondering why I need to specify the line delay at the GM of my frequency band in my Cal Kit when the TRL calibration itself inherently determines this delay and I already know the physical length of the line? I am using dispersive transmission lines on an 8510. Sorry if the question sounds stupid but I have not been able to get my head round it so a most basic explanation will be welcome.
