MembershipProviders are about storing authentication credentials, not other
data. This is by design. If you'd like other data for your user, then use
something else (like the Profile). Don't fall into the trap of wanting to
extend an existing membership provider to add you extra data; this approach
is counter to the design of the provider model.

As for capturing this extra info and storing it on the profile, you can add
more steps to the CreateUserWizard to capture said data.
