Comment (by imath):

 @boonebgorges i know you find it ugly but i think there should be a type
 slug like members/type/teacher. Because once it will be possible to use
 this feature users will ask for editable slugs and we could arrive to the
 situation where registering with a teacher username would not be possible
 one day and possible another one as soon as the teacher member type slug
 will be edited or removed.
 About i18n we can provide a filter till we have an UI in because
 inevitably there will be one :)
 I'm also thinking of a potential groups taxonomy, if we don't use à slug
 prefix for member type then we will be a bit forced to not use one.

 About the feature, i have another question once i arrived on the page
 filtered how i know i'm viewing members having the url member type without
 looking at the url ?

 I think it's an important point because users might be confused as soon as
 they click on the "my friends" tab (or a tab added by a plugin). If they
 have 10 friends and only 3 are teachers and nothing is informing (else
 than the url) you are browsing members having the teacher type. I can
 imagine people screaming "i lost 7 friends" :)
