 Okay, just looked into this and BuddyPress '''does''' in fact use
 multisite's validation routine.

 bp_core_validate_blog_signup() uses wpmu_validate_blog_signup() to check
 the blog URL pattern and wpmu_validate_blog_signup() doesn't allow
 hyphens.  So it is indeed a Wordpress MS issue.

 I'm guessing the MS admin backend doesn't use wpmu_validate_blog_signup()
 to check blog URLs when it should.
