It is shown that the wavefunctions used in conjunction with Harvey's quark potential to study baryons and dibaryons are far from the variational equilibrium. Once self-consistency is imposed, we find that the color-electric interaction yields no configuration mixing in the nucleon. It is further reckoned, following an estimate, that configuration mixing in the six-quark system might be greatly reduced at equilibrium.
