I think this is a security risk. If your organization has 50 or more members, there is almost a 100% probability that someone manually set their password to one of the commonly known weak passwords (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Password_strength ). Password strength should always be shown when manually changing your password and there should be an admin option to require strong passwords.
If someone could sneak into the site via a member's weak password, they would have access to the Member Directory and all information at the "Anyone" or "Members" level. I would suggest limiting information at either of those levels by default; users can manually change their profile to allow more information to be seen in the directory.
Another handy feature offered by our current website provider is a list of the most recently updated pages on the website. This helps frequent visitors to find the new stuff without having to pick and poke through a large site. Here are some suggestions on how WA could implement this:
Version 1: A simple list of 10 page links (number customizable when setting up the functional page) that have been recently updated. It should also list the date when that page was updated. Clicking on the page title would take the user to the top of that page. The list generator would need to be smart about what pages are listed; pages not accessible at the user's member level should not be listed.
Down the road options:
Check boxes to include sections on the functional page for most recent events, blog posts, discussion topics, etc. with the appropriate links.
Option to show the first few lines of text from the new pages (like Outlook's AutoPreview function).
A note that appears for users that have not logged on that additional pages may be listed once they log on/sign up. Valid only if this functional page is placed in a Public access area.
Add a "Track Updates" check box to the web page edit control dialog (just below the page name and the visible check box). Defaulted on, this determines if this particular page should be included in the Updated Page list. This way frequently updated pages and bulk updates can be manually excluded and not clog up the list.

If you add a link to a webpage, the Edit Link dialog includes an option to have the link Open in a New Window or the Same Window.
If you add a document to a webpage, the Insert Document dialog does not include this option and always opens in the Same Window. It would be very convenient if this option were added here as well.
I currently have go into the HTML code and add a target=_blank attribute to the <A> tag manually for each document link, which is very error-prone. Thanks!
