That would be my thinking as well but seeing that the current
implementation in CMFCore is even less flexible (it looks for
a 'Members' object - hard-coded id - in the site root) and
that CMFDefault overrides this to allow configurability of
the object id at least I thought it would fit better there.
But I agree with you that should we consider this at all
CMFCore would be the more appropriate place to do it.

Which is why I wrote the little intro in my original posting
and why I posted this here as a question instead of filing
a bug report right away.

Which is perfectly fine with me as I said before.
