Those are good points. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
There's bound to be some complexity from using a general tool for a
specific task rather than a tool that is designed from the ground up
for one (or a few) specific task(s).
On the other hand, you could take the issues you mention and look at
them as Drupal features that need to be more flexible. For example, a
setting that controls who can search for users would easily solve one
of your issues (is there a feature request for that?). Other issues
are trickier, of course. My point is, it's still worthwhile trying to
make Drupal an as flexible, modular and generalized CMS as possible.
For me I hope using Drupal will be a decent middle course between
building something from scratch and buying a readymade solution.
