This isn't Vana'diel any more.

Right, but once again, even in Vana Diel, they do exist, and are common in their homeland. People have asked and begged for a long time that they add them to FFXI some how, perhaps through a expansion going to their homeland, but have been shot down for various reasons.
What better time, and what better way to finally give people what they've been asking for in this regard? This finally gives them the chance to be creative and have more freedom to do things like this. And so far FFXIV seems to be all about pleasing the players. So yeah, I would say more than it's possible in all complete honesty, and with complete respect. I would have to personally say it's probable with about a 99% chance. I don't see them not being added.
Also, take a look at FFXI, they KNOW people want Male Mithra, which is why they added Lehko (The Male Mithra NPC in the FFXI WOTG Storyline). They know the demand is there. So I'm sure they will play off of this. It will add something new, fresh, and creative, and simply make them more money off of the fanservice off of it.
