Modern humans bred with 5 archaic human species?

Rather odd speculation here considering we are on "the information super-highway." Anyway, Neanderthal DNA has been sequenced. The key point is that there is evidence that Neanderthals did interbreed with "modern" humans. Then the Denisovians are added. Since all current existing races can interbreed, it appears that both Neanderthals and Denisovians were as human as you or I. The painted depictions of Neanderthals have changed over time. Putting muscle and skin over old skulls does not reveal if Neanderthals were white or some shade of brown. The artist just makes best guesses.

Neanderthals buried their dead. They produced cave paintings.

Besides the Neanderthals and Denisovians there apparently are around 21 human species, at least that's how many we have found so far. Around 10 of them intersected, if not interacted with modern humans.
