One possibility is cultural in as much as it could be apllied to people from
that long ago.

Interchange could have taken place, but not on a organized basis, but rather
opportunistic - one tribe attacking another for resources and keeping the
women or something like that.

The main question, IMO, is not wether or not there were exchanges between
the groups, but rather, were they realy two different species?
