There were some old TSB's about shifters being hard to get out of Park on an incline. With the force of being on an incline on the Park pawl, the hardened steel rollers sometimes got 'dinged' and wouldn't release in Park in many cases.
A binding shift cable or column mechanism would cause high shifting effort under any conditions (inclined parking or not). By setting the parking brake before putting it in Park would keep the stress off of the Park pawl and was a method of diagnosis for this problem.
