I believe it was brought up some time ago back on the old forums, and my answer is still the same: as in any militaristic organisation, it will be rather conservative so changes will take place much more slowly in it. So although the Spriggats might be trated as equals in most of the Shadowling society by the time of TSoG, it might be that Spriggats would just start to become accepted into Psy Assassin ranks.

Acceleration of change usually happens during great military conflicts: such as the women's death battalion in the Soviet Army, then the women's military formations in British and US armies during WWII, as well as the "all-black" units that were formed and which had quite impressive battle statistics. Yet, after the Shadow Wars, it looks like no major conflict took place in the meantime, hence the process of integration of Spriggats has not been catalysed by necessity.

Though to be fair, given how the Shadowling society was quite militaristic, the public opinion may be indifferent or even favourable on the issue. (Think of how in 20th century KGB, CIA and MI6 were mentioned in politics.)
