Questions about CEPH's map

It's been obvious from the start that the CEPH/Genethon people had a
good Internet scheme going  -- access by all the favorite protocols.
(and to make things even better, the good folks at the U.Michigan
Genome Center have provided WWW search facilities.
<a href="">Human Genome Physical Map</a> from CEPH-<a href="">Genethon</a> (at <a href="">U.Michigan Genome Center</a>)

But what is the explanation for the Cohen quote in the Science article
about "only 1 person sending out requests on the Internet"?  Was some
important context lost?  Did Dr. Cohen mean that there was one person
available for non-internet requests or for showing non-netliterate 
biologists how to get the data?  The incongruence between that article
and the excellent (and well net-publicized) net access has had me wondering
for days.

Hope someone can shed some light on this curious statement.
