See my post to Brighit. But, just in case you missed it,
When that was decided it was, I think with the intent of making it
Easier on "newbies". I'm one of those people who have played a long time
(since 1989) and have never been blessed with an AOA.

I suppose it's conceivable (and this is not a comment on the OP) that
non-armigers might be considered, by whomever made up this system, to
be less experienced in the likes and dislikes of the group, and
therefore to be less "trustworthy" where entrees are concerned, or
perhaps less inclined to expend a lot of effort for people that don't
know too well.
Along similar lines, all other things being equal, for a Thanksgiving
potluck, are you going to assign the newbie (and yes, I know there are
people like me who were in the SCA for seven to ten years or more
without getting an AoA -- work with me, here) the bread-and-butter
pickles or the turkey/ham/etc. ?
I'm not saying it's _good_ reasoning, mind you, just that it may be
what they were thinking, or at least part of it.
