It differs between address books and calendars for no good reason that I
can see.

I trust Milan or Chen will correct me if I'm wrong here, but I believe
address book backends have to call e_book_backend_notify_auth_required()
if they require a password to connect, and then at some point later the
password is provided through the EBookBackend.authenticate_user()

Calendar clients are expected to provide a password up front, which
backends receive through the ECalBackend.open() method.  If a password
was not provided or the password fails, the backend is supposed to call
e_cal_backend_notify_auth_required() and then at some point later I
guess the client opens a new connection with another password?  The
semantics of this are less clear to me than for address books, so I
might be partially mistaken.

As always your best bet is to look at what the other backends do.
