I too would look for roles under 'admin - user'.  Adminittetly, I 
wouldn't look for it under 'admin - user - configure'.  I would find it 
under 'access control' though, but it wouldn't be my first guess.

What bother me too is that 'admin - user - configure' still has:
   1. access-related settings
   2. profile-related settings

I like the idea but it's hard to evaluate without being able to see it 
in action.
