Comment (by Bobcat):

 It seems to me that both of the features you want to drop were part of the
 plan from the beginning:

 From http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities

   Plugin developers will likely revise the 'standard' Roles and
 Capabilities because !WordPress Developers left open the future
 possibility of assigning a user to one or more Roles, or assigning
 Capabilities directly to a User.

 From http://boren.nu/archives/2005/12/01/whats-new-in-20-roles-and-

   Users can belong to one or more roles and can have individual
 capabilities assigned to them outside of the context of a role.
