I did not mean they are the same, I meant that there seems to be a
one-to-one relationship.

So I am wondering, since the auth does seem useless without an aor, but an
can exist without an auth, why was the auth object created in the first
instead of extending the aor object with username/password/etc fields?

I think auth's only use would be when all the aor's would register using
the exact
same credentials, and even then it would only save a small amount.

But I bet you're now going to say, those small amounts are going to add up..
