With this and other discoveries regarding Neanderthals in mind, does it still make sense to call them non-human in any meaningful sense? I would think the fact that we all interbred would be enough to knock down the species barrier, but I don't know for sure.

I've usually seen Neanderthals described as Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis, meaning that they are considered the same species.
