How do proponents of the multiregional hypothesis interpret the mtDNA genetic data seemingly indicating an "African Eve" vs. the interpretation of this data by proponents of the out-of-africa hypothesis?

Out of all the numerous kinds of miniature humans chronicled in myths from various cultures (trolls, elves, leprechauns, dwarfs, goblins, little people, faeries, etc), why do you think the scientific community nicknamed Homo Floresiensis the "hobbit", a completely fictional being? Do you think scientists are intentionally avoiding acknowledging the veracity of these myths or is it some kind of general LotR geekdom?

On the flip side, given the wealth of circumstantial evidence over the centuries, some cryptozoologists have hypothesized that Bigfoot/Sasquatch/etc could represent the last surviving remnants of Neanderthals, or some other type of hominid. Do you think this could be possible?
