Well, I think so. At least the CMF has different objects for members
than for users (the former come from the CMF Member tool, the latter
from a standard Zope user folder). That distinction was it that I was
reminded of when you said you wanted separate User objects.

Ok, I see your point :). My question was actually positioned with the
PrincipalAnnotation utility in mind and whether you think that it still
is needed once you have first class User objects.

That was more the statement I was looking for. That, and a statement
regarding the PrincipalAnnotation utility in particular...
