The remote user table is needed to authenticate a user for a remoting session, otherwise everone would be able to reconfigure your server over the internet without having to provide a username and password.

The sys_user table is not used by the remoting framework and shall not be used as normal users shall never get access to the remoting functions. The remoting functions are a low level api that dont care about the user permisions in sys_user, a remoting user has the same permissions then a admin user.
