You could certainly hack something in and use the WordPress user table and
user meta. However, if your full membership list is something totally
separate from your WP/BP list - I'd be tempted just to maintain it in a
seperate table with the specific columns you need.  I would assume that you
have data like mailing address, home address, phone number and etc that
isn't needed in WP/BP.  I think I'd keep all that separate and maybe have a
field for WordPress ID in that table.

It's hard to make a recommendation without knowing the situation better, but
that's my first thought.
