My only question is this... why would the following characters even have a 3D model for kombat if they aren't unlockable to use?!? Kung Lao, Nitara, Frost, Kitana and Drahmin!! You don't train or fight any of these people in the konquest mode!! Why would there 3D models even be in the game?!?

All game programmers develope these little things to help them test out a character or a file. But until they tell us fans we'll never know the turth about this case and we'll continue to make thoeries as to why.
To add to what Angel said, the MKDA characters are in there purely for the ability to fight them in Konquest. Their files names in the game code are even MKDA_name. They were never intended to be playable, that'd be too many players in the game and could throw off balancing of the game.

If they did, then it seems they do that all the time. In MK 3 they planned to have Scorpion, Jade, Kitana and Mileena in the game but never had the time so they waited till UMK3. Then in MK4, they made 3 arcade versions, each one with more stuff then the rest and Kitana was supposed to be in MK4 but again didn't have the time so they waited till MK Gold.
