Mobile users as cases?

Hi everyone,

We are building an application to streamline Mobile Users devices maintenance.
In this app a case represents a Mobile User.

If not, it means that each time a new mobile user is created, she needs to be
:

  1. added to the Mobile Users
  2. declared as a new case in the phone maintenance app

I’m a bit wary of this kind of data duplication.

Is it possible to directly link the list of mobile users to cases ?
Alternatively, is it possible to manage (create / delete) mobile users from
CommCare ODK ? We’d register new Mobile Users with the Android client, so
they’d be appended to the list of cases and a new Mobile User would be
created.

Many thanks,
