 If I understand this correctly, you mean that the Friends widget can be
 used everywhere, but it doesn't really work everywhere, because it depends
 on the existence of a displayed user, which only occurs on the main site?

 If that's correct, then yes, this is a good observation. We already
 explain in the widget description that "Widget is only shown when viewing
 a member profile", which suggests that it won't work on subsites. But your
 idea of not showing it at all does make sense. Let's look at this for 2.1.
