Why so hung up on the size issue?
As said, the fish in the store are there temporarily until sold. It is not a long term thing. 27L is about 7g and IMO is fine for one Betta and the rasboras as long as you don't add any more. More fish = more waste = water conditions going down hill quickly. The swimming space of the fish also needs to be taken into consideration.
FYI a full grown angel can top almost 30cm high. The ones you see in the stores are only babies and will grow quicker than you think.

even if you had a decent sized tank,it would be a bad idea. the angel would kill the betta

I have an angelfish. Not sure how old he is tho. He's about 3in tall and 4in long including his tail. I used to have a betta in with him until about a week ago and they got along perfectly fine. I wonder if it makes a difference if the fish 'grow up' together...?
This all depending on a bigger tank of course. Mine is in a 30g and I feel this is way too small
