Agree entirely (but I think that =adherents sounds better than =adherent
:-)), but, as in most things, there will always be occasional awkward ones.

As anyone who is involved in checking family history knows, the Church of
the Latter Day Saints has probably the biggest collection of family history
records in the World. Their family history libraries are usually located in
a corner of their church building, & are open to the general public, but
the public are not allowed into the church proper, so that would need a
combination of access=adherents on the building & also access=customers (?)
on the library room/s.
