If I'm not mistaken, they are not consensus sequences, but the best
"representative" sequence for each cluster.  Directly from the NCBI Web

"It should also be noted that no attempt has been made to produce contigs
or consensus sequences."

You'll need something like STACKDB to get a consensus.  Though a consensus
might not be necessary to map back to the chromosomes, the representatives
are probably enough for your purposes with ESTwise...
