Not at all.   Massive mixing of populations is historcally a very new thing,
the consequence of massive, fast, travel, and that has stopped in Severian's
time for reasons of technological exhaustion.   The peopel of the
Commonwealthe are not a pan-human mixture:  travel is by foot, and
immigrants are very rare.    You can argue about the relevance of this to
the real future, but not Wolfe's internal logic.
