Also don't forget the channel around the trunk seal. The fron edge can easily fill causing a heavy rain to deposit water in the trunk. The area above the tail lights need to be kept clear also.
I imagine the weatherstrip will do the same, keeping leaves out of the trunk channels. I will go ahead and try it.
