 At the end of the description of #6278, i've talked a bit of this idea :
 having an extensible UI for avatars so that we can provide various ways of
 setting an avatar :

 There can be 2 ways provided by core :
 - Upload an image
 - Take a picture using the device camera #5548 (if `getUserMedia()` is
 supported by the browser)

 We could have tabs for each ways. When i've upgraded the BP Avatar
 Suggestions plugin, i would have loved to "extend" such an UI, to add a
 new tab :)

 Of course, it's still a work in progress :) So far i use :
 - wp-backbone
 - plupload for uploads
 - imgAreaSelect for the cropping part

 I'm able to upload the avatar, crop it and set it for the user. Associated
 to the Attachment API we are working on, i think it would be an
 interesting enhancement.

 What do you think ?
