Well, yes, valid point based on the assumption. 

But then again, there may not have been any such thing as abo's in the
sense of a native race, and the Trenchards are con artists or even

On the other hand, Robert Borski has made a pretty solid case that not
only is Vic's vanished mother of the  Free People of the hills, but Roy
Trenchard is actually an abo also, specifically of the marshmen,
therefore no Terran/Annese crossbreeding is necessary (leave that kind
of scenario for Star Trek). Check out the essay entitled "Roy Trenchard,
Homeboy". If it's not in the Urth archives, it's on RB's Cave Canem
