That's what Byrne thought too, which is probably why he drew the Broccoli Genocide.

Claremont thought Phoenix was still basically just Jean Grey, with a solar radiation based power boost. Phoenix wasn't an independent entity, just Jean Grey who had become too powerful to relate to human beings anymore and manipulated by Mastermind.

Retroactively, everyone decided that Byrne was right all along, leading to years of Phoenix Force events.
