And more on topic, I really don't think it matters, there is a measure of "strength" in the Naruto world, but if you notice everything is more about balance. The elements all have a strength and weakness, the jutsu types do it too. I don't think it's about the difference in strength between Oro and Itachi, I think that Oro throws paper and Itachi throws scissors.
