What is the major advantage of the new approach over using profile advanced settings to create a Drupal user at the time of profile submission? Is it that a customization to create the user captain role was undesireable for some reason, or the default UI of CiviCRM profiles for creating/updating contacts was not what you wanted?

The reason for this approach is that the portal is a different site than the site in which CiviCRM runs. In my understanding the profiles only works on the same site as civicrm.
