 I suggest we remove the avatar upload from the user
 registration/activation process of BP-Default.

 Currently people can upload an avatar prior to their account being
 activated, and complete their initial profile. The difference between the
 two is that xprofile data is always text, and so can live within a
 database in a compact format. An avatar exists as a JPG someplace on the

 Aside from technical issues, I believe the UX of account registration is
 very non-standard for no beneficial reason.  (the UX looks like: fill out
 registration -> upload avatar -> activate account -> login)

 Patch attach removes the avatar upload step on user registration. I've
 also taken out the template_notices do_action() as currently we get
 duplicate "thanks for [registering|activating] your account" messages with
 the page template.
