Personally, I'm leaning toward "a rotor is a rotor".

Probably correct...unless the rotors are manufactured with inferior raw materials or quality control isn't real a priority. The only difference I could discern was coated rotors don't corrode as quickly as non-coated. Other than that, as long the steel is of the highest quality obtainable and the rotors balance well, a rotor is probably a rotor.

A rotor by any other name will still stop your car.

a little poetic flourish there
