Also makes a lot of sense if the group is playing the higher tier. You might not want to slow the group down with a 6th level, and a 7th level pre-gen might be a better fit.
In my day, when I was a Venture Officer, words of this nature would have never left my lips.
I show up to game days to play my character. Suggesting that somebody not play their character (and I quote here), "to slow the group down with a 6th level" blows my mind. About five years ago, at Gen Con, we forever lost a player, a good friend of mine in fact, because nearly these exact words left the mouth of the players at his very first Pathfinder table at a convention. He showed up with his Level 2 druid, sat down with a table of 4 & 5's, and was promptly told that he would hurt their group too much and he should play Kyra. He got up, left, and never came back to the game.
Now...the original poster asked if he could play the low level pregen because he felt overpowered, which is fine, if a player has made a decision on his or her own, they do whatever you want, but I'd strongly, strongly consider words more carefully in the manner that you may "slow down" a group of higher level players.
