If the castes are based on level of evolution, that
would seem to be the inevitable conclusion, yes.

But in that case the castes would *not* be based on
level of evolution of consciousness.

How the various roles would be assigned in a society
in which a caste system based on level of consciousness
had vanished because everyone's on the same level, I
have no idea.  It's a good question.  Maybe folks take
turns doing whatever needs to be done?

In any case, there wouldn't be any "elitism."

Caveat: I am NOT advocating any of this or saying I
believe in it or even think it makes sense.  I'm merely
speculating as to what MMY might have in mind.
