How much yeast is known? [Re: Progress Report YEAST Genome Sequencing]

Colleagues, 
I got an inquiry of a colleague (not woking at the Biozentrum, but 
within our EMBnet services) on what fraction of the yeast genome is 
sequenced, resp. available if a BLAST, FASTA or MPsrch request is 
launched. I screened the archive and found the data recently posted
to the yeast bb.  Just for the sake of a correct answer on the second
question, I would like to ask the following questions related to the 
included posting.

Does this include MIPS sequences which are kept confidential, i.e. 
not being available to the non-MIPS-customer research community?

As there is a considerable amount of yeast sequences already published 
in the sequence database (with functions etc. assigned), what would be 
a more customer-oriented guess on what fraction of sequences is available 
to the community in the EMBL database?
