The term "Srivaishnava"

Dear Mani, RR, friends,

   I am under the impression that the term "srivaishnava" transcends 
caste boundaries. That is, one can be a srivaishnava irrespective of 
the varna that one belong to. Is this correct?

   I know that in practice caste plays a big part but I thought that
at least the term is free of caste connotations.
