Comment (by needle):

 It's essential behaviour for any plugins that provide xProfile fields too.
 During the plugin upgrade process, the field definitions are lost - but at
 least the data remains.

 I've had numerous support requests from people who upgraded my BP XProfile
 WordPress User Sync plugin rather than replacing the files as recommended.
 The procedure to reconnect the data with the fields created after the
 deactivation works most of the time, but not always.

 My preference would be that fields could have a "hidden" flag so that
 fields don't need to be deleted on plugin deactivation, but I would
 definitely not want mandatory automatic deletion of field data when a
 field is deleted.
