Comment (by sorich87):

 Yes you can load other files with the action but will you be able to do
 anything to prevent locating the original file?

 Yes, I can hook into it with a custom function which will load the file
 from my custom location using a modified version of locate_template, then
 die() so that locate_template is never used.

   In that case, we will have a bunch of mixed code for locate_template as
 well as get_template_part as the current bp theme structure requires you
 to load files from sub folders.

 get_template_part also allows loading files from sub folders.
 The equivalent of 'locate_template( 'dir/file.php' ) is get_template_part(
 'dir/file' ). So uniformity will be maintained.
