Not to start a CMS-comparison, but all these features are available in
the current Plone site as well. Setup even already is done. And it is
administered by IEM, who run all their stuff with Plone, so there's
quite a bit of knowledge and experience already there, not to mention
the tons of content that has been uploaded already and hundreds
(statistics, IOhannes?) of registered users.
