As far as lack of gender diversity among the masters, I look at it this way...

-Kiritsugu, Kotomine, and Tokiomi are all required to be male because of inference from Fate/Stay Night.
-Kayneth pretty much has to be male for reasons that will be presented later on
-Caster's master has a personality that would be very difficult to stretch to a female character, in my opinion at least
-Kariya has to be male, or else he'd lose a very key element to his character development later in the plot

Waver could have been female I suppose, but as with some of the other masters, it kind of draws the plot into a direction that the author clearly had no desire to explore.

In my opinion, at least.
