There are way more things wrong in that picture than Hardibacker though. Can't tell if it was even sloped, no middle support, 1/4" board, no felt behind it etc.
I don't use wood benches anyway. When I install hardi/Durock any 1/2" board, I will build block and mud benches or use better benches.
Matter of fact the steamer I am doing right now is the only wood bench I have had in a shower in awhile. It was already built and it houses the steam generator. This is a Kerdi shower though.

I'm not trying to defend hardi, but I built my fabrication table topped with 1/2" hardi and I run wet polishers on it for hours straight and the bottom never gets wet! It's 4 years old and the studs have never seen water. No bull!
Use the membranes though! It's someone elses money and it should be done.
