"Member data" is wildly different from "user properties":  memberdata is
about stuff local to a site, which is not required to have its own PAS.
 Think of "member data" as being local annotations keyed by user ID, not
as being tightly coupled to the user from PAS.

(The fact that Plone forces the site to have its own PAS instance blurs
this distinction).
