The authentication system isn't proper for multiple site. Suppose I have site a and b. I can't register an user with same username for site a and b. There isn't any way to determine that which user is related with which site.

The auth and sites frameworks aren't designed to support this use case out of the box.

But you can achieve this result by using separate databases, or maybe with a custom auth backend. The latter solution will be easier once #3011 is fixed.
