I'm opposed to Siebrand's view. Pages for me are any pages, including
subcategories, files, talk pages, articles, project pages. They only differ by
the namespace in which they reside, and there are possibly many other
namespaces (don't assume that all wikis will behave like Wikipedia).

If you want to have counts be namespace, then what would be needed is a two
parameter syntax like:

{{PAGESINCATEGORY:categoryname|namespace-id}}

to make the restriction (the same magic keyword can be used, to provide
separate counts for each namespace).

or even possibly like
{{PAGESINCATEGORY:categoryname|namespace-id1|namespace-id2|...}}
if you want to include a list of several namespaces to include in the count.

The existing difference between NUMBEROFPAGES and NUMBEROFARTICLES does not
rely on namespace differenciation but on statistical parameters (notably the
page size, excluding included templates).

Introducing the term "member" will just add more confusion.
