Vault License Usage

I have read a few different takes on how Vault licenses are consumed, the last I remember was per IP address. We use both Autocad and 3ds Max in conjunction with Vault 2014. We use Windows Authentication(AD) for login to Architecture, Civil3d, Vanilla and Mechanical. Unfortunately since 3ds Max has no option to login via WA, we have had to assign the 3ds Max users a separate Vault login. Oftentimes, these users need to be in both Autocad and 3dsmax concurrently and I had always assumed since Vault was being accessed from the same computer (ip) that only one license was used. I recently installed Mario's license utility and noticed that two licenses are used when this is the case (see attached) It does make sense that since this is really a separate username, two licenses should be used but is there any plan to add WA login to 3dsmax? thanks, Blake
