Why does SimCity need "Always-Online" when it runs through Origin?

As the title suggests why does SimCity need "Always-Online" DRM when it needs the Origin client to run the game. Doesn't the Origin client act like a verification mechanism to ensure the game is not pirated?

Because EA thought they can do it like Cities XL except the Cities XL multiplayer didn't panned out so well.

EA: If they can do it, so can we!
