It probably hasn't been discussed much because it's a somewhat old-fashioned HLA analysis, which probably isn't as useful as many more current autosomal analyses, or even Y-DNA/mtDNA analyses really. Nonetheless I think that some of its results would likely replicate using other methods, like there being a greater difference in genetics between Alpine and Plateau regions that between East and West regions or even than linguistic regions. One odd result is that Lausanne clusters on the other side of the German-speaking sample regions, away from other French-speaking regions, as if Lausanne was genetically more "German" than the "German" regions. I doubt that would replicate with other methods, though.
