I agree that what most people want is to simply add new member 
properties, but I'm not so sure about the 90%...

Anyway, in the past years I've been using CMFMember (and now remember) 
in several projects, mainly when a member approval workflow is needed. 
And, of course, in these situations members also benefit from AT 
features: they can be easily enhanced with references, rich text/media 
fields... But workflow is definitely the requirement that drives me to 
use a member-as-content solution.
