This may seem silly.. but is there a particular reason only certain harmonics were recorded for the cello?

In the following passage, the Eb artificial harmonic won't playback...http://www.dosblanc.ca./photos/cello_harmonics.jpg

Funny thing is it plays back all the "obscure" natural harmonics that the cellist actually had trouble with at the first performance of this piece hehehehe
(apparently some cellists aren't all that used to seeing 5ths and 3rds as harmonics)

Only the natural harmonics were recorded, not the artificial ones.

I wonder why they limited it that way?
