It doesn't exactly map, does it, because there are more magid-potential people than magids- they have to agree to it and be trained. They don't get paid, but they do get the satisfaction of using their magic, going to other planets, knowing about the structure of the universe- I think they have more fun than the Old Ones. 
The Undying are born to it in a similar way to the Old Ones. But there is the question of whether some of them can avoid being gods if they stay anonymous.
