 The idea has merit, but we'll need to touch every part of our codebase in
 order to check the user's permissions to view or interact with any piece
 of data. WordPress.com recently implemented something similar, and the
 hardest part was tracking down and making sure we accounted for any edge
 cases in existing functionality that were introduced by such a change.

 Once BuddyPress is using proper WP user roles/capabilities, this should be
 relatively simple to implement (though it won't likely be backwards
 compatible for existing BuddyPress plugin).
