Ven. Ananda's arhant-hood and further questions

Dear Friends:

Greetings. I would like to request all/any of your opinion in this following question:

When the First Buddhist Council took place Ven. Ananda, first, was not admitted in the Council Hall, for, he was not an arhant, as the arhant-hood was, it seems, the qualification to be admitted at. Now why was the arhant-hood was very important- to know the Dharma by heart as Ven. Ananda seems to have had (and as the Vinaya in Ven. Upali's case),  necessary?
