 I don't see the value in `/members/type/foo`.
 User profile URL should be canonical and always the same (remember the
 thing for posts). Think about search engines as well. Each user should be
 identified regardless of type, with 1 URL only. What if user type changed
 from `bar` to `baz`? Duplicated profile?  Store a constant redirection?
 That's an increase in complexity, with no real extra benefit.
 Breadcrumbs can be easily altered taking into account user type on a fly
 without the need of extra slug in URL, page title - the same.
