Yes , Sasson, that's the point. However I think that the relative silence around this extraordinary finding is that structural differences may yet to be found among human Y chromosomes. The tree might be to be constructed on structural aspects.
It took 5 years from the first draft of the complete sequence to this paper with a structural analysis. I wonder how long it can take to compare on the same basis the main haplogroups (A, B , C etc...) from known full genomic sequencing.

By the way, I am looking for the full text of this article...
